    As Lawrence does not write like me, I like to read his poem. His poems do not have any attachment and it looks very strange to me. A Good poet.

    An amazing poet with both remarkable and at times baffling skill and talent. I would have to say he is one of the best modern day poets out their.

Best Poem of Lawrence S. Pertillar

$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'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!
MAYBE...
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! '

Read the full of $10 A Gallon?

Being Themselves

If what is felt to feel,
Comes from your heart to express it.
Less concern you should have,
When what you feel to know it real...
Is scrutinized by others.
Wearing masks.
And charading false impressions to make.
Seeking acceptance and approval.
From others,
