Posturing...'What An Attitudinizer ' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What are they doing?
It's fascinating.

'It's not really new.
It is how they do it.
They make it look so fresh.
And so innovatively done too!

Rumor has it,
It began in D.C.
Now it's sweeping across the country.'

I like the way they stop.
Look reflectively to the sky.
Take a few steps.
Fold their arms across their chests.
Tilt their heads to the side,
As if to listen.
And repeat the process.
Then stop.
Pat a foot to look intentive.
While placing their index finger over the lips.
As if to stop the flow of speech.
Wonderful.
This is going to be mainstream one day.

'It leaves more of an impression,
With the hip hop music behind it...
Doesn't it? '

Of course it does.
That's how it caught my attention.
I could not help but stop!
I'm in awe.
I can see right now,
That's going to be a fashion rage.
What is that called?
I can't wait to introduce this to folks in my hometown!

'It has already become an underground movement.
Literally!
It's called POSTURING.
You take a position,
Then act as if you're about to do something.
But don't! '

I absolutely love it.
Posturing?

'Yep.
That's what the kids call it.
Posturing.'

Great.
Wow!
That's fabulous.
What an attitudinizer.
I can see why it's such a tremendous hit.

Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
What an attitudinizer,
That can really hypnotize...
Set your eyes and fix them,
And anyone can do!

Now...
Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
Posturing.
What an attitudinizer, what an attitudinizer.
What an attitudinizer,
That can really hypnotize...
Set your eyes and fix them,
And anyone can do!
