Best Poem of Lawrence S. Pertillar

$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'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!
MAYBE...
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! '

Read the full of $10 A Gallon?

Zapped

When a mind is shut...
Don't try to pry it open.
It is better where it is decaying,
Left alone.
Leave it!
There is hope with others showing
Signs of response.
Those who are replusive...
Are already dead anyway!
