Slot Me Not To Peg In Fields - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Slot me not,
To peg in fields...
Appeasing to your comfort,
With a zest to raise your zeal

Not me.
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.

I live not to be so addressed.
Within your limits.
To bring a sweetened peace to your nest.

Not me.
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.

Living with a meaning,
To have others pleased,
Makes that for me a nightmare...
Screamed out from my dreams.

Not me.
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.

You may wish,
To high profile.
Quick to grin...
Or give wide smiles.

But I...
Am not one to do charades.
Or sit pretending,
I'm living to be Grade A.

Not me.
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.

Slot me not,
To peg in fields...
Appeasing to your comfort,
With a zest to raise your zeal.

No not me.
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.

I've earned to do what I please.
And...
If I want to sneeze out loud!
I'll do it,
When that happens...
In a crowd.
