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! '
Through Brick Walls
Truth pierces through brick walls.
Steel encased in layers of cement.
And probes so deep into stormy seas.
Sun rays can not reach.
Receivers trained not to blink fixed eyes...
When telling their outrageous lies,
Perceive with a dependency they've obtained...
Skills to blind at will all told lies to disguise.
