Lighten Up - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
As you walk out of the door...
You say you've heard it all before!
The apologies and excuses,
You were not going to take anymore!
My staying out at nights,
With friends you don't particularly like.
Or my snoring that keeps you awake...
You say is loud and makes the bed shake!
But you are no one's angel.
There's not a wing I see on your back!
Every time I turn around you have a frown,
Instead of a smile once in a while...like a snack!
And when you and your friends gather to chit and chat...
I have to take a back seat,
And pretend I'm a pet like a cat!
And you tell me you're leaving because 'I'm' deceiving?
That YOUR not tolerating anymore of that?
Well before you go there's one thing you ought to know...
That car outside is mine!
So if you leave...
Remember, I've got all the keys!
Including your very last dime!
Why do you take things so seriously?
You know I was only teasing.
