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! '
Kept It Wanted
It is not so much what is represented.
It is how it is presented.
With many wishing less of it,
That has been consented.
By those who have chosen to accept,
There is nothing better for them to get.
Could if they would,
Just kept it wanted.
And in these tumultuous days?
That to want is much more of a need!
