Searching For A Gem - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I wont try to figure you out!
Nor accept a pointless test.
My time is not for you to waste.
Not for you to misuse or replace.
I recommend an ego adjustment.
One you need and right away.
No one I know is seeking 'mystique'!
Especially when flesh like yours is on display!
I wont try to figure you out!
Or will I spend a moment in doubt.
I am searching for a gem that is genuine.
Not for something 'had' and tossed about!
