Black-jack

Give me another hit.
I'm going to stay with it a little bit.
I'm in the midst of this to win,
So...
Hit me.
Hit me.

Black-jack,
Give me that!

Give me another hit.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
Keep the others that you give me real low,
So...
Hit me.
Hit me.

Black-jack,
Give me that.
I want to get a twenty one then be done...
I don't want to be the losing one.

Black-jack,
Give me that.
Hit me.
Hit me.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
And after I win I'm going to quit.

So black-jack give me that!
Hit me.
Hit me.
An ace would boost me up a bit.
And after I win I'm going to quit.

Commitments

It has always been important,
To expose and display...
With a showing to those younger,
By the ones who have 'accepted' aging...
To be bold and courageous,
When commitments are made...
In a keeping of one's maturity.
To intend to have them stay that way.

But for whatever the reason many adults believe,
They should keep young ones pleased...
By proving they too can do dumb things,
To then produce foolish excuses made...
With a running away from responsibilities,
Declaring there is a need for outside assistance...
That protects them from a lack of their own negligence,
Is...
More today permitted,
By unintended commitments made to ignorance.

'When I recommended,
Commitments are made to stay with them...
I did not intend for you to interpret,
That not paying attention to comprehend...
Automatically happens when your ears are closed.
And your mouth constantly left kept open.
That's not the kind of commitments made I'm talking about.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Ferguson?

Ferguson?
Just another place,
Where racism exists.
And historically...
Has been tolerated.
With a of pointing fingers with it done,
While ignoring these times that have come...
That only affects the ones who have accepted,
Themselves to be better than other ones.
Yet continue to self inflict with ignorance they do,
To believe blood shed with corruption to spread...
While result to benefit the ones who perceive,
Keeping those less advantaged and controlled...
And on their knees,
Will prove that the few who oppress to uphold...
Archaic beliefs their ancestors to them have sold,
Without confessing to self examine...
That ferguson isn't just an isolated incident.
But Ferguson represents,
A darkness attempted to be kept hidden...
That exposes and reflects a selfishness believed,
Can thrive undetected by keeping reality deluded.
While hoarding resources, benefits and opportunties,
Exclusively shared amongst those using deception...
To please the feeding of evil and ignorant misdeeds.

And yet unfortunately as hunger and homelessness,
Continues and existence that is permitted...
Ferguson may get current focus and media attention.
But Ferguson is far from the only place...
Where people are restricted to limits,
By those with minds blinded by their own insecurities...
To not face the consequences these insecurities leave,
Only achieve the increasing of social conflicts.
And minds inflicted with mental illnesses,
Decreases the quality of life 'everyone' deserves to live.

Making Decisions

We make decisions.
Some of them quick.
Some of them split.
Some of them mixed,
With a wish to quit...
Making decisions we have to admit!

We make decisions.
Some of them quick.
Some of them split.
Some of them mixed,
With a wish to quit...
Making decisions we have to admit!

How often does a hindsight renew,
A clearer vision wished we had then used.

How often do we then excuse this...
As mistakes we've made,
Too late to shake away.
To turn around unphased,
Just to have things our way!

We make decisions.
Some of them quick.
Some of them split.
Some of them mixed,
With a wish to quit...
Making decisions we have to admit!

How often does a hindsight renew,
A clearer vision wished we had then used.
While making decisions wearing the same old shoes.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
