Caged Prisoners

They take a vote to decide,
Whether or not they should move forward?
And another to decide if they should abandon,
Those limitations of thought and the process of it!

This may seem ludicrous...
But people like this actually exist!
They think of themselves as being progressive...
With an exactness,
Even caged prisoners would petition against.

And despise they do,
Those who protest their degraded quality of life.
They prefer that such issues be kept quiet...
And not attract attention.

Lessons received from their ancestors.
With content and comprehension...
Has been released and is nonexistent!
And yet...
At odds with the delivery, purpose and perception.
When in celebration of historic events...
Although clearly maintaining the routine of values meant!
Nothing more!
Just the pretense of it!

Even though an hypocrisy kept,
May be in conflict with the hip hoppers...
Unwrapping disrespect gone unaddressed.
With presentations that expose cracks on naked butts!
As minds fly high around warning signs posted on trees,
Above the pictures of missing neighborhood children!
But who really cares...
When there are still those who are trying to 'project' traditions.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Cait Couldn'T Wait To Bait

I am...
Outraged!
Well...
I'm trying to believe,
I should be outraged.
OR envious. OR jealous.
Even I don't know what to think,
Or feel anymore.
God has 'got' to be a comedian.

'Why?
Why such a heated temperament.
Calm down.
What has you so upset? '

One guy.
The father of several children.
And in his mid-60's,
Decides he's been hiding...
And telling lies about his sexuality.
And I tell you...
OVERNIGHT he has become,
The most gorgeous woman...
I've seen in years.
And 'already' he's adorning magazine covers,
Getting book and TV deals...
That will pay him MILLIONS.

'Why should what he does bother you? '

He had been a man's man.
A top rated athlete.
He was on a Wheaties Box.
A loving and doting father,
On a top rated reality TV show.
NOW...
He's a glam queen.
What CAN'T he do?
Do you realize how high,
He has raised the bar for all men?
AND women too?

'So what are you saying? '

By himself and himself alone,
He has totally done away with limits...
Perceptions and definitions of boundaries.
And for years I've been censored...
For making the same attempts.
As a wanna-bee writer.
But looks and image,
Are the only things people today care about.

'And he has had both for years.
To now have done it on both sides of the fence.'

Who does he think he IS...
Bruce Jenner?

'Cait.
He wants to call herself Cait now.'

Yeah!
Cait couldn't wait to bait.
Like a Jessica Rabbit setting traps.
With a doing it to drop lots of jaws.


Dedicated:
'To anyone,
Who can achieve and receive complete happiness...
As both a man AND a women in ONE lifetime,
With a blowing away minds publicly...
Is a phenomenon to witness.
Especially during these days,
Of transitional upheaveal.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Cakewalk

I admit my life has been a cakewalk.
And every beating I've endured,
That has scraped my knees...
As I fell to awaiting pavement,
And knocking my head against obstacles...
I can say today,
After experiencing the heat of it...
And tasting every bit of the mixture made,
I have grown to enjoy in my progressing years...
The addition of the delicious frosting I did not expect.
After developing my patience and eliminating regrets.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  4000.     

Calamities?

Calamities?
Yes.
Fried without the shells.
Leave the bellies,
And bring lots of tartar!
Also a dip for the chips, please!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
