Don'T Try To Use Logic

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

No where will I...
Or should I obligate myself,
To have your priorities...
In my head.
Nor hold myself accountable,
For the lack of interest to do so.

No where in my mind...
Can I find,
Justification to feel guilty...
For your display of irresponsibility.
And I recently spent all of five minutes,
Being concerned of giving that too much thought.

Let's set aside our differences,
Of opinion.
And together,
Come to this agreement!

You will,
In the very near future...
No longer accuse me for not being 'there' for you.
And I...
Will not find it necessary,
To wonder where you are when I arrive...
To find you gone.
Doing whatever it was that suits you.
AND with whoever.

And we...
You and I,
Can today agree...
That completing those things I need to do,
To get things done...
Will not anger you.
And while I am doing that,
At the best of my ability...
You will focus all of your attention,
On locating a purpose for your life.
How's that?
Does that sound reasonable enough to you?

'Don't try to use logic on me.
It is a little too late for that!
You're 'always' thinking of yourself!
What do you think I am,
Stupid?

If you don't have time to drive me,
To my job interview.
And wait patiently,
Until I'm done to bring me back home...
Fine!
But say it.
Don't beat around the bush with me.'

Son...
I love you.
But at 45 years old...
Don't you think,
That's YOUR responsibility?
You 'kids' are something else today.

Don'T Turn Me Off

Did I ask you for an estimate,
To be shown.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To make known.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To condone..
My asking for a need of it.
To have you in my life,
And...
With a making of a perfect fit.

Don't turn me off with your tests.
Or think of me as your pet,
To fetch with a feeding your needs.

Don't turn me off 'cause you may regret,
The way I respond that you wont forget...
I don't accept estimates of love,
Or am I desperate of it to get.
Don't turn me off...
With your tests!
Or think of me,
As your pet.
You will be left and without regret.
Don't turn me off with your tests.

Did I ask you for an estimate,
To be shown.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To make known.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To condone?
Don't turn me off...
With your tests!
Or think of me,
As your pet.
You will be left and without regret.
Don't turn me off.

Did I ask you for an estimate,
To be shown.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To make known.
Did I ask you for an estimate,
To condone?
Don't turn me off!

Don'T Wanna Be Again The Fool

Do you need someone...
To hug,
And sweep your heart away?

Do you need someone...
To love,
And...
Say true love will stay?

You know you do,
Don't you?
You know you do!
You know that's true...
For the fools.

Do you need someone...
To hold,
And be your number one?
Do you need someone...
Who's told,
More love is yet to come?

You know you do,
Don't you?
You know you do!
You know that's true...
For the fools.

You know you do.
You just know that's true.
But you,
Don't wanna play again
The fool.

You know you do.
You just know that's true.
But you,
Don't wanna be...
Again,
The fool.

Do you need someone...
To love,
And...
Say true love will stay?
You know you do.
You just know that's true.
But you,
Don't wanna be...
Again,
The fool.

You know you do!
You feel it too!
But you...
Don't wanna be again the fool!

Don't wanna be again,
The fool!
And be played against...
Your rules.

'Don'T Worry About A Thing, I'Ll Handle That! '

I've been around a few Summers.
And I know where the Buffalo roam.
Where the Deer and the Anteloupe play.

And those discouraging words I've heard.
More than seldom.
And at one time...
I heard them all day.
Spiced with a variety of insults.

And when someone says to me,
'I've got your back.
Don't worry about a thing,
I'll handle that! '
My concern radar goes on full alert!

You know how you can tell,
A blood hound has his/her target in sight?
Not a muscle moves.

I'm not accustomed to folks being that overt.
Not when it comes to my wellbeing.
This is a statement of fact.
Call it a conditional acknowledgement.
Not a complaint.
So,
Please don't get this confused...
With one speaking the truth,
And another being delusional.
There is a difference.

My eyebrow raises before my lips part!
And whatever comes out of my mouth,
Is intended to offend.
With no apologies extended.

Like I said...
I've been around a few Summers.
And I know where the Buffalo roam.
Where the Deer and the Anteloupe play.
And discouraging words I've heard.
More than seldom.
And at one time,
I heard them all day.
Spiced with a variety of insults.

And,
They were not sung by a cowboy!
Strumming a guitar by a campfire,
On the prairie.

And when someone says to me,
'I've got your back.
Don't worry about a thing,
I'll handle that! '
My concern radar is on full alert!

A 'fool' I can do.
But being a jerk at my own expense?
Today?
With all the deception and devilment going on?
I don't choose to prove that kind of ignorance.

There are more Autumns, Winters and Springs,
I'd like to experience without submitting myself...
To complete stupidity.
Not consciously, anyway!
Or for a few tease dollars.

But,
If that's going to be use to motivate...
I may reconsider.
Like I said...
A fool I can do.
Depending on what price is paid.

SURE!
I've got your back.
Don't worry about a thing,
I'll handle that!

~I see!
You will 'always' be a capitalist.~

I see!
You will 'always' have your mouth open,
In times when it should be shut!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
