Those Unsuspecting Experiences - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There IS something advantageous,
That comes to one...
Who has those unsuspecting experiences,
Acquired early and when one had been young.

On the onset this may present an irritant.
For one like this to come into contact,
With a consistent ignorance.

But the acknowledgement one has...
Knowing one doesn't have to put up with it,
Is as refreshing as a tall glass of Long Island Ice Tea.
Hmmm, delicious.

There IS something advantageous,
That comes to one...
Who has those unsuspecting experiences,
Acquired early and when one had been young.

One can sit back and observe,
What is being done.
With the end results already known,
By those disbelieving what their ignorance achieves.

'May I have another glass of Long Island Ice Tea, please?
With salt free Tostado Chips.
And a large order of Guacamole.'
