Trickery From Tattered Sleeves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People have been insisting for years,
They've assisted with his efforts.
Or he consulted to gain their expertise.
As if he need them.
And he was on a leash.

When word of this leaked,
He was not pleased a bit.
Deceptions of his abilities,
Made him seethed with contemptment.

Needless to say,
Some arrangements have been made.
And quickly those who had taken his talents for granted,
Could not believe...
Those they thought skilled,
Could only produce repeated trickery from tattered sleeves.

'We were told he had been motivated by them? '

I suppose they told you they painted the Bay Bridge as well?

'No!
But they did say they were consulted on the color! '
