Don'T Try To Use Logic - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

No where will I...
Or should I obligate myself,
To have your priorities...
In my head.
Nor hold myself accountable,
For the lack of interest to do so.

No where in my mind...
Can I find,
Justification to feel guilty...
For your display of irresponsibility.
And I recently spent all of five minutes,
Being concerned of giving that too much thought.

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

You will,
In the very near future...
No longer accuse me for not being 'there' for you.
And I...
Will not find it necessary,
To wonder where you are when I arrive...
To find you gone.
Doing whatever it was that suits you.
AND with whoever.

And we...
You and I,
Can today agree...
That completing those things I need to do,
To get things done...
Will not anger you.
And while I am doing that,
At the best of my ability...
You will focus all of your attention,
On locating a purpose for your life.
How's that?
Does that sound reasonable enough to you?

'Don't try to use logic on me.
It is a little too late for that!
You're 'always' thinking of yourself!
What do you think I am,

If you don't have time to drive me,
To my job interview.
And wait patiently,
Until I'm done to bring me back home...
But say it.
Don't beat around the bush with me.'

I love you.
But at 45 years old...
Don't you think,
That's YOUR responsibility?
You 'kids' are something else today.
