Headaches To Tolerate Patiently - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

An escalating of a child's game played,
With it done to bluff...
And charade a toughness,
To bully those believed afraid.
Today does not deliver,
The expected results.
Since those today who are bullied,
May come around the following day...
Equipped with a bulldozer,
Without explanation why they found it,
Neccesary to eliminate experiencing...
Headaches to tolerate patiently,
When an easier way has been found...
To completely remove their existence,
From the ground where they had been played.

'You can't do that.
Using that kind of tactic.'

~Why shouldn't I? ~

'You are suppose to plead with us,
To let you play without being harrassed.'

~But I'm not feeling harrassed at all.
I've discovered a way to erase my impatience.
Don't be offended.
I'm sure you will find a way,
To escalate a needless tension to get yourself...
More attention.
And at least, when and if that should happen,
Neither one of us can rely on the past...
To make what was done worthy to remember.
Do you mind,
Finding a seat on the 'new' bleechers being installed.
Time is no longer mine to waste,
In attempts made previously to negotiate.~
