Delivering The Difference - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Shallow platitudes are okay but overused.
But show them only as reliable expression...
That are picked to fit,
A mood and attitude.
Something that is quick and said suitable...
Within the season to match the festivitude.
Seasonally soothed as is one's custom to choose.
This may sit well,
For those who shop for a triteness to drop.
Like an appropriate decoration...
In one's vision to represent.
Like a Halloween costume.
Or Christmas holiday scents.
But there are some folks,
Who only accept and appreciate...
The very best of what's genuine.
And taking the time to demonstrate it,
Says a lot about the person...
Who has qualities unrehearsed.
And that says a lot about them.
