How Long Did It Sit

If something has been allowed,
To escape from the making of sense...
How long did it sit on a mind to ponder?
Before it was noticed to have left importance.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  6398.     

How Long Do You Think It Will Take Them?

In denial?
Here...
Take these!

'Gee...
I didn't see that! '

With these binoculars,
It can be clearly seen...
Those folks are still blinded,
By the darkness.
And their approach to consciousness,
Has been severly hampered.
By inflighting and division.
Come on...
Let's go.

'How long do you think it will take them? '

For what?

'To reach daylight? '

You can't be serious?
You are...
Aren't you?

'Why can't we give them a benefit of a doubt?
It was given to the others.'

How long have we been here waiting?
They have been there eroding everyone's patience...
Since...
Well,
Since the first computer was introduced.
And that was in the '60's!

Are you coming?
We've run out of flares.
The floodlights have been turned off.
And the bonfire is about to go out!
The ship is about to leave.
Do you want to be on it?
You can waste your years...
In preparation,
If you want to!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  6399.     

How Long Have They Been Doing This?

What and who are they looking for,
Outside of their own backyards?

'The neighborhood association,
Has contacted them about the trash...
Piling up.
Or they would be fined,
If the other homes depreciate in value.'

And...
Their actions are connected to what?

'Well...
It seems as if they are seeking hints or clues,
To place the blame on others.'

How long have they been doing this?

'Since they were notified a few days ago.
And of course they want to prove themselves,
Not the culprits others believe them to be.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

How Low Can Traditions Sink?

Is he a hypocrite?
Another self righteous sleaze,
To be known to victimize boys...
With compelling sermons,
Preached from a pulpit.
Or...
Is he just another demon,
Philosophing life with hymns and scriptures.

And using standards long now ditched,
Into cesspools where the wicked become enriched.
And with a knowledge of this...
Give glorious performances as expected.
But when they leave people pleased,
They crawl back into their holes...
Where others like them remove their pretentions.
By disrobing from a slickness...
To do things discreet, down-low and unmentioned.

Is he a hypocrite?
Another self righteous sleaze,
To be known to victimize boys...
With compelling sermons,
Preached from a pulpit?
What do you think?
How low can traditions sink?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
