We Ate It And Took Her For Granted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I don't like.
But the suit worn is exquisite.
And he wears it if taylor made.
Of course he has a taste for fashion.
And on his eyes we love those shades.
'Besides his looks...
What else about his leadership,
Is important to you? '
That is a real good question.
He has image.
His wife is stunning.
And his children are gorgeous.
He speaks intelligently.
And has all of the credentials.
And today that's an asset.
Since all the white kids are into hip hop and rap.
You've got me stumped!
I know he represents hard work and discipline.
And 'that' is his biggest drawback.
Prior to his election,
No one thought about working to remain great!
We all thought that was understood.
Like the taste of grandma's apple pie.
Until she died.
No one alive knows how to recreate it.
We ate it and took her for granted.
'Who? Your grandmother? '
