Some Things Others Do - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

May tolerate your laziness.
But me?
I find it offends.

I know what it takes to be disciplined.
And those accepting mediocrity with ease...
Is like hearing the screeching,
With chalk on a blackboard...
Intentionally begin.

May tolerate your laziness.
But me?
I find it offends.

And I know I represent,
An older generation now!
Some things others do,
I will not let go unmentioned.
It is wonderful to see someone attempting their best.
And that effort seems to grab my attention!
