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! '
In The midst.
Descending with a transition emitting.
An effluvium invisible that rids,
Unneeded mental waste.
Too long sitting to overload with confusion.
Permitting a persisting conflict.
Permitting ignorance to be obeyed.
Minds begin to clear.
Enlightened and no longer frightened,
