What Has Happened To Reality? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Outside my window clean and clear,
I heard the Robins cry!
I saw the sunshine disappear...
I felt the Earth shake me inside!
DON'T PANIC! DON'T FEAR...
I waved to neighbors who did not respond.
Ducks were being taught to walk on the pond!
Even the grass once green turned blue.
Where is this place brightness once knew?
I ran to the mirror...
No image I saw!
I had to be dreaming,
Is this some kind of new law?
What rights do I have,
To return back to sanity?
This can't be happening to everyone...
Like it is happening here to me!
'Honey, it's time to take out the trash! '
THANK GOD I'M ALIVE
I awakened real fast.
'This is the 10th anniversary of the war in Iran.
Insurgents found in Bermuda were trained on our land!
And we must never forget the years of death in Iraq.
Now that Fidel and Chavez are the Emperors of that!
The President has stated she has hired a gardener to defend.
All of the pigeons caged safely suited in the Den!
New prescriptions for Cocaine can now be delivered! '
Said the newscaster showing detailed pictures,
Of his transplanted liver!
'Honey, why aren't you answering me? '
Said the voice of a man...
Addressing the man in me! !
WHERE IN THE HELL AM I? ? ?
What has happened to reality?
