Preposterous And Offensive - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Too weak to bob and weave.
Or review mistakes,
Based upon my taste for conflict.

I can write for you a post dated check?
To pay these days to start and end...
My personal conflicts.

And if this procedure,
Proves to be successful...
An arrangement can be made,
To have payment for these tasks...
Directly deposited for your convenience.

I have been accused,
Of being thoughtful and generous.
And that look on your face...
Isn't new to me at all.
It confirms it.

I've grown accustomed.
When that first given,
I interpreted my request...
As being preposterous and offensive.
