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! '
If you had not been prioritized.
To be selected with life to experience it.
And expected with this gift.
To do more than sit and complain.
Not only you may question your existence.
You can bet God wonders too.
If His decision to bestow you with life.
Had been a futile mistake.
