Something Genuine That Has Rare Vitality - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Each will come to have their turn.
To positions to appease egos.
And each will eventually...
Do their best,
To keep their practiced plagiarisms...
Hopefully to continue to go undetected,
To become recognized as a slice of innovation.

Cleverly kept in disguise.
And provides them their motivation.

This activity...
Leaves the taste for the originator,
To return to give what has been yearned.
Something genuine.
That has rare vitality!
And none are able to reproduce it,
With an ambiance...
That spices the atmosphere with such an array of flavors.

And I know I do this very well.
I've been behind the scenes auditioning for too long!
