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! '
People Who Decieve
People who deceive.
As if to celebrate this joyfully.
Eventually defeat themselves.
Since those who believed,
They were of goodwill and not misdeeds.
Are beginning to discover,
With their eyes open wide to see.
Even the folks wearing homemade halos.
Are the biggest hypocrites.
