Like Everyone Around - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I don't wanna lose nobody
When I say this.
I don't wanna lose nobody
When I unball my fists,
And IF I should throw a fit...
I want you all to sit down!
I don't wanna lose nobody now,
I wanna share what I found!


I picked up on some gossipness,
Between sisters and brothers
And others mixed!
Talking about this and that
And him and her
And where something happened,
And what occured.

I eased up very gently
Since I didn't want to disturb,
What was being said...
AND what my ears heard!

Seems like nothing's being done
To bring happiness to them.
They talk about being 'saved' and 'holy'
And All I hear from them is sin.

He's trying to make a date,
After her husband leaves the home.
She gives him a time to meet...
So they can be there all alone!

His says his wife,
Has a new friend she likes.
He liked her too..
Until he saw them screwin'!

She held his hand...
And he rub it against his crotch!
She rubbed his behind,
That raised his 'hard' a notch!

I couldn't believe
What I heard and saw.
These two should be arrested...
For taking my breath,
And dropping my jaw!

I stood there in awe.
Where IS the law?
I want to report what I heard,
And saw!

I don't wanna lose nobody
When I say this.
I don't wanna lose nobody
When I unball my fists,
And IF I should throw a fit...
I want you all to sit down!
I don't wanna lose nobody now,
I wanna share what I found!

People that sound...
Like everyone around!
