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! '
Kept To Learn
Ignoring what takes place.
Seldom makes it disappear from ears to hear.
Or fade away to stay out of sight.
Even having enough of it.
Seems to give it validation to sit.
As if it had permission.
But a changing one's routine.
With an approach to view it differently.
Could provide it an appearance before not seen.
