Getting Paid Under The Table

Getting praise does not make one pretty.
No matter how great one's talents.
Or longevity in the spotlight.
However...
One with money and looks like a moose,
Could convince anyone getting paid under the table...
That they are an Easter Bunny masquerading as Halle Berry.
And deserving to be featured on the cover of Playboy Magazine.
With the exposure of their 'gifts'.
Someone with money or the capability to make it,
And narcissistic too?
Can not be told they do not possess natural beauty.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Getting Plenty of Exercise

When you snore,
My imagination awakens.
No longer do I sit...
Disturbed by the sounds,
Coming from your unshut lips.

I now have learned to use this.
With added rhythms,
I dance to it.
And getting plenty of exercise,
While you unconsciously sleep...
While providing,
'My' physical fitness.

With no expense to me at all.
And you,
Are left with no clue...
Just how involved you are.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Getting Their Weekly Dosages

It is remarkable.
People actually believe,
They can sit through a ritual...
And transcend their demons.
Like a forgiveness given,
Automatically erases misdeeds.
As if a cleansing takes place.
And one becomes gifted,
With selective memory.
And all is forgotten.
Perhaps that is the reason,
Why some places...
Are so crowded on Sunday,
By those getting their weekly dosages!
With descriptions of sins,
So vividly captured to tempt one's taste.
AFTER deep prayer.
To entice a repeated visit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Getting This Kind of Mistreatment

When someone says to you,
Your assistance is not needed.
Nor any suggestions from you they've requested.
And you sense you are being treated like a pest.
A nuisance they rather disregard,
That makes you get upset?
Take deep breaths and little steps...
Closer to the nearest exit,
To leave!
And forget the episode!

Something about you annoys.
But you do not have to be annoyed,
By anyone's display of ignorance.
See it for what it is and retreat.

And IF...
You have a need,
To repeat getting this kind of mistreatment?
Next time...
Just rollover on the floor,
After being walked on.
And play dead!

Perhaps by delivering this reaction,
You will accomplish a mutual satisfaction.
That pleases what is sought and understood.
With something acceptable for you,
That has been achieved.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
