Slick Tricksters - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Believing themselves to be equipped,
With a kind of wit that makes them slick...
They appear from nowhere,
Out from the woodwork...
To show their aging routines.
As if slick tricksters...
Assuming as they once did,
The ones they wish to 'do'...
Have no clue what they are up to!
And their immaturity they believe,
Is not in full view.
To once again...
Undermine and defame,
One's character to put to shame.
And these 'kids' masquerading as adults,
Are all over the place.
Or you just might find yourself,
Tripping over their toys.
Placed to trap to entertain their laughter.
