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! '
Time Will Reveal To Tell
Who today can possibly know the outcome.
Eventually time will reveal to tell us all.
If lies told to have them believed.
Just may someday become the truth.
And no one will dispute what is reality.
Since the odds are in a liar's favor.
