Immediately They Took Offense

What happened to the beautiful home,
That once elegantly stood here?

'The occupants burned it down,
When a new maintenance worker hired...
Just a few years ago,
'Suggested' that getting a new furnace...
Would save them a bundle in their utility bills.'

And...
They burned the house down?
Because of a suggestion?
That doesn't make sense.

'Well...
Those very same words were spoken,
By the maintenance worker...
Who attempted to tell them,
They were blinded by their own stubbornness.
And immediately they took offense.
And, well...
That beautiful home no longer exists.'

There's go to be more to it.

'Oh...
There is.
The residents declared him,
An arrogant lowly nobody.
Who was in no position to tell them 'what' to do.
And the head of the tenants' association,
Got the rest of the occupants to agree...
They would end his job.'

By burning down their own home?

'You wanted to know...
What happened to the beautiful home,
That once elegantly stood here?
That's what happened.

You should have heard the occupants applauding...
An hour before anyone called the fire station.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Immuned From Payback

Who are these creatures with their minds fixed,
On obsessed importance and self-centeredness.
What makes minds like these,
Accept and believe it is never too late...
To express an appreciation to those they hesitate,
An admitting of taking their patience and time...
For granted.

Who are these creatures,
Who had once been placed in positions...
To climb over fences protected by locked gates,
For the purpose to ensure they would come face to face...
If they just knocked on doors to have success happen.
To then have it heard by them to later state,
How what was accomplished was based on merit...
And their strong kept faith.

Who are these creatures,
Who stepped upon backs to crack...
To believe they are immuned from payback?
Or a fall from heights so fast they've been stripped naked,
To perceive when they have reached rock bottom...
Someone dismissed by exposed cold shoulders,
Would be awaiting gleefully to accept from them an apology.

'I've returned with it hoped,
You would accept my apology.'

~That's great.
But I believe those cookies you want to sell,
My find a better reception next door.
They may be what you are into.
As for me...
I'm not into nudists.~

'Please, anything...
A coat, a jacket. Perhaps an unused blanket?
You don't remember me?
Even my tattoo?
REMEMBER MY BOTTOM,
BECAUSE YOU WILL SEE IT ON TOP.'

~Uh...
Are we on camera? ~

'No.
I've been struggling through some very hard times.'

~Like I said...
Next door you might find better luck.
Who knows...
Maybe your struggles wont be that hard.
I remember when my own use to be.
But today,
Maturity and age has taken care of that.~

Impairments

People do themselves the injustice,
When they perceive with belief...
They can prevent a mission of another.
And...
What they do and how that doing is done.
With an effective movement that stunts,
To stop with a doing dropped of all advancement.

To then wonder why,
Their own lives have been limited...
By a self inflicted ignorance.

With a doing to expect others,
To provide them assistance to escape away...
From their own creation to protest against!
And then to accuse 'them' and 'they' and 'whomever',
Along with others they have kept distanced...
Of being indifferent to their mental 'impairments'.
To deny this impositon implemented can not be resolved.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Impeccably Dressed And Prepared

The anticipation for the end of times,
Has overwhelmed beauticians and barbers...
From coast to coast and globally.
And 'After 6' evening wear is running out of stock,
As being reported by those in the 'in' crowd.

While reliable tailors everywhere,
Are working their fingers numb...
Trying to get their customers' requests,
Ready for the final fitting on time and as scheduled.

Oh yes...
Many are guaranteeing their end of times experience,
Will find them impeccably dressed and prepared...
To be enthralled by the 'Rapture' of it all.

'Mervin?
Is this like New Year's Eve...
When we celebrate with the toasting of champagne? '

~Gee!
That's a good question.
I don't know.
This is my first 'End Of Times' as well.
Call Bill and Evie.
They think they know 'everything'.~
