Oh? No! And Yes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
There are three words I have come to use,
Frequently as if a dependency to keep...
A strength kept of my mental stability,
As a beneficial and effective life I live...
More each day kept appreciated and positive.
Especially in the presence of those,
Who have chosen to represent themselves...
To know better than I do,
Those experiences I lived to survive the removing...
Of obstacles, opposition,
And what I did after drying of my own tears.
Too many folks want to prove themselves,
As drama queens like no one else.
Whenever these unqualified 'historians',
Begin to make comments I know did not exist...
Involving me and based upon assumptions quick,
They can not from them resist to permit...
With embellished exaggerations from their false lips,
I respond like this...
Oh? No! And Yes.
To find my peace of mind kept as it is.
From an 'audience member' point of view,
Awaiting for an intermission to know I've witnessed...
Bad performances and a bunch of nonsense.
