In Several Assorted Baskets - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Living with an interest and curiosity,
To collect various experiences...
Ultimately returns benefits.
And will never leave,
Anyone staying to remain prepared...
For that which some may say to accept,
As someone who rejects...
Comformity and the status quo.
And those standards preserved,
In values cemented.
Everyone follows with them to know.

Yet proven to be limited are those mindsets.
Fixed upon that which has faded fast.
And left so many feeling reluctance and grief,
That their eggs placed in one basket...
To produce outdated and molding tasks,
These days have made no sense to do...
For those having no reason or kept interest,
To relive times for them long to have passed.
With a mastering to place their eggs,
In several baskets for any assorted and required task.
