Why Throw Away An Opportunity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Each day presents,
Another opportunity to vent!
Doesn't it?
And why throw away an opportunity?

Have you noticed that those who lie,
About 'one' thing...
Can be relied upon to lie about 'everything'?
You can go to Vegas with that one. Bet 'and' win!

The odds will be highly in your favor.
Walk into 'any' casino blindfolded...
And amaze yourself with the results.

And how about the ones,
Invited to come to your home.
And treated with the utmost of hospitality.
Only to leave to complain about the decor.

Needless to say,
These folks don't get invitations anymore.
They shouldn't.

Each day presents,
Another opportunity to vent!
Doesn't it?
And why throw away an opportunity?
