Please Do Not Bring This To Their Attention - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
About as authentic as false smiles will allow.
Or one's depiction of those envied,
One's truth is in the acceptance of one's perception.
And the ability to entertain denial!
Stand where you are,
And observe this!
One who embellishes without constraint,
Can damage the quality of a class act.
By going through the motions.
And not a growth shown from that...
Is attempted with or without requests.
Will put replicas to shame.
But those accustomed to mediocrity,
Would never know the difference between
What's genuine or fake.
Since much of their environment,
Is based on substitutes and other things demeaned.
Oh...stop that glaring at me!
Open your eyes and let that be seen.
I'm just your tour guide.
Not the creator of this BS!
Please do not bring this to their attention.
We find their pretentions,
Judging by your reaction,
You do as well.
At least your good tastes have not been wasted.
