My Work Ethic

I make what I do look easy.
So naturally,
Those who believe they know me...
Think there is no effort applied.
And insist I could get a real job,
If I tried.
And they have real jobs they despise.

And I can say,
My work ethic is real.
I am devoted to what I do.
And with me that is the appeal.
I may not have money they can respect.
Or finances to purchase what I wish for next.
But there is one thing I know no one with me can bet...
I wont be seen shopping at the mall seeking a happiness.

And I can say,
My work ethic is real.
I am devoted to what I do.
And with me that is the appeal.
So naturally,
Those who believe they know me...
Think there is no effort applied.
And insist I could get a real job,
If I tried.
And they have real jobs they despise.

And nothing that I do with this passion I have,
Can I describe or categorize!
And everyday what I do to do it until it gets done...
I feel grateful to be blessed,
With a happiness I can regard as fun!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Petty People

Petty People...
Could care less if they are petty.
That's who and what they are.
Constantly seeking the center of attention,
Addressing petty issues
Most people wouldn't mention!
And having a way to nip and tug.
Much like what a little dog does.
Snapping and barking at the slightest little thing.
Petty people...
Exploding their mini volcanic 'tops'
Just to shoot off itsy bitsy lava drops!
That's all those petty people really got!
With their poked out lips...
Like children a closed ear often ignores a lot!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sophisticated Love

Few will ever risk it.
Or admit this from their lips...
It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

Too fussy to get busy,
When such etiquette is wished.
In a publicly addressed expressed,
Sophisticated love.

It's hard to get too physical,
When make-up touched gets rubbed.
With a maintenance existing,
In sophisticated love.

It's hard to get too physical,
When make-up touched gets rubbed.
With a maintenance existing,
In sophisticated love.

Few will ever risk it.
Or admit this from their lips...
It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

It's hard to get too physical,
When make-up touched gets rubbed.
It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

Too fussy to get busy,
When such etiquette is wished.
It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

It's hard to get too physical,
When etiquette is wished.

It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

It's hard to get too physical,
When etiquette is wished.

It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

Too fussy to get busy,
When such etiquette is wished.
It's hard to find and keep,
Sophisticated love.

Turn Off The Light

I'm not always going to say those things you like.
In fact,
If I do say them...
You can take from me a hike.
I am not going to spend,
Time
Trying to find a way,
To say nothing that offends your sensitive mind.
I'm not always going to say those things you like.
Especially not this time.

I'm not always going to say those things you like.
Or even try to stop them,
To keep my honesty on edge or uptight.
I may be wrong believing,
You to be the co-pilot in my life.
And when I think deeply about it...
I wish you'd parachute right out of my sight!
You don't want me to be sweet and nice!
You'd like me to roar or bark.
Like some animal you've domesticated to be home trained.
Listening to you whine until the wee hours of dark.

I did not see that movie.
And apparently you are still there viewing.
Snap, crackle and pop your ass out of that!

Perhaps I can be quite insensitive.
But there's a limit I'm not going to let,
Myself to you now give.
Since you enjoy whipping me into a huff and puff.
And that's the kind of stuff I've had enough.
Suffering from the agitating unbuffered fluff...
You like to give and not give up!
Enough!

I'm not always going to say those things you like.
In fact,
If I do say them...
You can take from me a hike.
I am not going to sit up all night,
To hear the spite you have
For your so called two faced friends.
To leave me feeling like I'm the one,
Crazed and on the deep end.
With a mind spinning a madness beginning?
No!
I'm not going to allow myself to get that comfortable.
Not with that in our bed.

I'm not always going to say those things you like.
Like shut the hell up!
And turn off the light.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
