Undisturbed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Everything had to be redrawn in crayon.
Black and white depictions,
Were arguably creating stress.
Someone suggested replacing red for green
On the flowered battlefields.
That was the only way
These scenes were sold at the malls!
And using magenta for the stacks of garbage,
Piling in heaps...
With pink lids topped with yellow polka dots,
Was a brilliant recommendation.
This should keep the shopping revenues
Undisturbed for months...
Even years to come!
