Better Bitter Than Bitten - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Better bitter than bitten.
Or hung out to dry and smittened.

One can get over quickly a bitterness,
That hits...
When told by a mister or miss,
What is felt should be forbidden.

Since a committed spouse...
May be hiding out watching.
And not too far from the house,
If one decides cheating...
In a game of cat and mouse,
Is caught and found out.

Better bitter than bitten.
Or hung out to dry and smittened.

It is best to portray an innocent kitten.
Than to be struck by a louse...
In a rage and shouts in obscenities heard,
By neighbors outside one's house!

Peeking from windows but quietly listening,
Until cops are called to stop cuss filled mouths...
And domestic bouts!
As a peacefulness is returned,
To please a snitch who believes...
Sleep is needed and is more than deserved!
