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! '
Untieing Of Knots
The untieing of knots that have blocked,
Truth and its presence choked and stopped.
Today is being picked to have this knocked away.
As if carried chips on shoulders,
On those to be stacked.
For no other purpose than to betray.
To keep their disbeliefs,
A reason for division.
