With Little, If Any, Scrutinizing Feedback

The difference between 'good'...
And accepted mediocrity.
As observed and done with much ease.
Is a wish to break barriers of a commonness.
If it is acknowledged and then addressed.

There is nothing like being directed to be on top of things,
To avoid last minute necessities needed to produce success.
Or at least, the anticipation of it!
And doing that with hard work to manifest,
That which is considered the basics of success.

If something has been declared,
Prepared and ready for public viewing...
And a seriousness is attached!
And all cast members,
Are made to be aware of that fact!
All traps are then sealed

To appease those who may or may not clap,
Enthusiastically when that curtain closes.
And the lights are dimmed,
With little, if any, scrutinizing feedback!
Or a demand for entrance fees returned.
A preparation beyond rehearsals...
Is a requirement for that!

To make sure no one feels they've been burned.
Or singed by a lack of professionalism shown!
Since paying for that may be a concern!

'OH...
You seem to be familiar with theater.
And the quality needed,
To mount a successful production? '

Yes, I am.
That's why I avoid doing any of it here!
And one of the reasons why I am not asked.
Since what I do is not recognized.
Or considered acceptable to those,
Not up for the task!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

With Logistics AND Statistics

It did not take me long,
To realize how phony you were.
I was taught logistics...
Many years ago when I was a kid,
In the military.

And with logistics AND statistics,
As a foundation from which to deduce reality?
The only thing I regret...
Is giving you time to believe,
You could take all the time you needed...
To make me appear to be your fool.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

With Looks On Faces

It has been historically reported,
Commandments were sent...
To be obeyed as ordered.

There were ten of them.
Depending on recommended versions...
All of which ignored.
To be followed...
Not amended as wished.
But a need for satisfactions...
To a detriment,
Was explored.

To redefine The Almighty's wish!

Man chose to dilute these truths.
With laws to complicate the basics.
And today humanity faces,
Consequences to embrace...
With looks on faces fed with greed.
And difficult to replace a created disgrace.
But actions are not traced...
Back to a feeding that chose to disbelieve!

And that feeding still exists.
With screams from protestors...
In demands for more of it!
With looks on faces...
Addicted with insistence,
To a feeding of more of their greed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  400.     

With Lots of Boos Instead of Ahs

There is really nothing gained,
In the hopes of a rain storm to pour
Down on someone's parade.
Or maintaining a jealousy perfected...
Behind a charading faηade,
No one suspects or perceives as odd.
Unless someone becomes offended,
By acts of a friendship pretended!
And the cheering from the sidelines sent...
Are clearly boos instead of ahs that are meant.

There is nothing really to critique.
When another sweats to unseat defeat.
Applause should be open and not discreet.
When a true wish of happiness is felt for one deep.

There is so much to be learned,
By the success that some achieve.
If we prepared to share and care
To receive lessons taught...
Instead of finding ways to help them bleed.

With a disrespect abundantly given.
That displays a rejection with envy to leave!
Hoping lots of boos instead of ahs that are meant,
Are loudly heard over accolades retrieved!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
