You Stink!

'You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
Way off the beat without a syncopation given.'

All I've ever wanted from you,
Was your trust.
Although my honesty shows,
Perhaps I trust too much.

Can't you see,
I'd rather be in sync with you desperately.
But you think I should first prove,
My devotion is complete...
With a soothing approving beat you seek!

'You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
Way off the beat without a syncopation given.'

'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink!
You stink.
You stink.
You stink! '

'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink! '
I know this but I came without a motive.
'You stink!
You stink.
You stink.
You stink! '

Can't you see,
I'd rather be in sync with you desperately.
But you think I should first prove,
My devotion is complete...
With a soothing approving beat you seek!

'You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
You stink!
Don't you know you're out of tune,
And out of rhythm.
Way off the beat without a syncopation given.'

I get the message!
You have preferences.

Your Business To Do

Aint nobody gotta know,
Your business to do but you.
Aint nobody gotta know,
The how, the why or the when of it.
Unless you pretend,
You have done your business...
To lie and coverup with alibis.
With a denying your business to do,
Has been described by others...
To have been a foul move.
And what is in the air you didn't put there.
Although the odor everywhere,
Had to come from you to produce.

'What you have done...
Stinks.'

~Who's business is it? ~

'We were doing our best,
To leave it yours to do.
But your doing of it has now made it ours.
And now you wish us to pretend,
Your mess is not ours to clean?
With a paying to get rid of it?
Your business to do,
Was a selfish thing that now includes us to clean.
And frankly...
Your attitude and what you have done, offends.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Your Outsourcing Abilities

Calm down!
What is the matter with you?
You look exasperated.
Irritated AND annoyed.
What happened?

'I arrived home.
And everything was gone.
All of my food.
Icecream and my favorite cookies.'

Gee.
Really?
I saw your buddies doing that.
But...
I didn't think anything about it.

'You witnessed it?
And didn't say a thing about it to them? '

Why should I?
Those are your friends.
Your allies.
And besides on my last visit to your home,
You declared you would do absolutely anything...
To get your hands on season tickets.
Do you remember this?

'Well...
Yes.'

Do you remember telling your 'friends',
Whatever they wanted from you...
They didn't even have to ask.
And whatever it was had been up for grabs?
And all they had to do was to take it from you?

'Well...?
Sorta...kinda.
Why didn't you stop me?
You could have said something.'

I did.
I called you a fool.
And then what did you say,
As your friends looked at both me and you?

'I said...
If anyone knew anything about outsourcing.
It was 'me' and not you who should be calling 'you' names.'

Exactly.
And you are right.
Apparently calling you a fool,
Was not enough.
Especially when you issued each one of your 'buddies',
A set of your house keys...
To come and go as they please.

'But I didn't think they would do anything like this to me.'

Well...
You did show 'your' outsourcing abilities,
At the expense of feeding yourself.
And I hope you are not here,
To accuse or blame me for your activities?
You and your friends do that 'feast or famine' thing together.
Do not involve me.
I am going to sleep, eat and live my life quietly in peace.
Would you like a sandwich?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

You've Got It. Finally...You've Got It

A pain remains,
If I keep it sustained...
In my brain.

'You've got it.
I think you've got it.
Repeat that,
A-gain.'

A pain remains,
If I keep it sustained...
In my brain.

'By jove you've got it.
Finally...
You've got it.'

I do?

'Yes, you do.'

A pain remains,
If I keep it sustained...
In my brain.

I think I've got it.

'You do.
You do.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
