Underselling A Delivery - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Underselling a delivery,
Whether purposely done...
Consciously or not,
That eventually impresses...
Those who purchase what is sold,
Gets the seller more attention gained...
With a humility seen as sincere.
To not think of as inconsiderate or bold.
Or self-centered with pretense.
Than the one who enthusiastically presents,
A doing intended to be received successfully...
As a priceless commodity everyone viewing,
Must have and need.

Although representing mediocrity shown.
To have interpret as titanium,
One brags about creating to achieve on one's own.
But obviously exposes a doing to become known,
As fool's gold to be produced,
With overblown expectations.
Done to do and assumed to be highly assessed,
To accept...
One who plagiarizes to reduce originality...
At one's best to thoughtlessly deceive.

'Your colors and use of them are vivid.
And quite imaginative.
However,
The rawness that displays it's creation is missing.
Why?
What has happened to the history,
Of your 'claimed' development? '

~Well...
I, uh...
Didn't think you would be asking,
For authenticity to validate its worth.
I was just expecting the attention to get.~
