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! '
Better To Appreciate
Everything seems better to appreciate.
When time moves on.
And what has been taken for granted is gone.
To wish that which is missed,
Had been known for its advantages.
Instead of a familiarity,
Dismissed for what it is.
To disbelieve that day would come,
Reminiscing that want to leave it.
