Lawrence S. Pertillar Poems
$10 A Gallon?
$10 a gallon?
'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '
One Of Two
The saying of the same thing said.
By two to do.
But a few hear it from one.
Because of tone making a difference.
Then when asked why the long face.
With a mumbling done.
The one of two thought to be rude.
And displays indifference.
Sits and refuses to respond.
