Someone Like You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Whatever is going on in your life,
You dislike yet initiated.
You should try...
Acknowledging that you had it your way.
To accuse others for your disappointments,
Only announces this loud and clear:
'YOU LIKE TO TASTE AND SAMPLE
WHAT IS SERVED ON THE TABLE.
Complain about what is on it!
AND NOT BRING ONE THING,
BUT AN APPETITE!
BLAME THE HOST FOR INVITING YOU,
TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FESTIVITIES.'
Is that reason enough,
As to why I rather not be in your company?
Or can consider you a trustworthy friend!
Someone like you I can not be around.
Nor can I depend upon or could ever defend!
Should not feel alone.
There are others I am sure you represent!
