  3997.     

'But He Has Not Been Tested! '

They say he is inexperienced.
They say he does not know how to lead.
Are these things being said out of jealousy?
Because he has clearly superceded those disgruntled...
Who lack vision with their outdated deeds.

And leaders around the world applaud.
And he has yet to take a step inside the White House!
Officially as the President, yet.
Is he too powerful to reside inside?
And over the total world population,
It is wished by the people...
That he meets to lead and preside!

'But he has not been tested! '
Say those who protest.
And yet those labelled terrorists...
Are ready to sit and end all conflicts.
With him they wish a peace to manifest!
And put to rest those with an Oedipus Rex complex!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  3998.     

But I Was Never Alone

I had to grow up,
Early.
There was no sheltered path,
Protecting steps...
I was made to correct.
By a sibling older...
I knew as I grew.

I had to grow up,
Early.
With a consciousness,
Of what to do.
And to face those consequences,
I lived to go through.

There were days of resentment.
There were days I spent alone.
There were days I wished,
For a childhood that was childish.

And today I am grateful,
For all of those experiences.
I learned through mistakes made,
And heartaches too.
I learned to listen,
With introspective comprehension.
My battles I fought.
And with time I recognized,
Those blessings to me God has brought!

I had to grow up,
Early.
With a consciousness,
Of what to do.
And to face those consequences,
I lived to go through.

But I was...
Never alone,
To be alone on my own.
And this to me,
God has shown.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  3999.     

But It Is To Your Interests

'We are against him.
He proposes to redistribute the wealth.
And that is not our interests.'

Oh?
But it is to your interests,
To maintain a drain on the economy
With trillions of dollars...
To give to a few,
With hypocritical views...
You campaign to keep.
To rescue with a 'bailout'
In a brainwashing of those who follow,
Standards and values that deplete them of reality!

'He wishes to inflict upon us socialistic values! '

And you...
Wish to keep those in need.
As you continue feeding your greed!
In a democracy that bleeds.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  4000.     

But More Of Less Than Even

Violence begets violence.
There is not a podium delivered speech,
That will end atrocities!
Those easily flattered,
Are quick to hoodwink.
And drained of birthright resources.
Tricking the witless into believing...
A substandard way of life is envied.
And every ounce of demented common sense
Shown
Will restore things back to normal,
Whenever we all agree what that is!
And violence begets violence,
By getting nothing...
But more,
Of less than even that's left to deny.
And squander like vagrants...
Making homes for maggots!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
