Kill As A Rooted Weed

Even from its birth,
What is accepted has to be allowed to grow.
To bloom as it is encouraged with a nourishment.
Influencing the environment...
With a benefit that returns.
Profiting mentally from a steadfast accountability.

To leave it believing it should remain as is...
Without guiding its potential or assist an ambition,
Will kill as a rooted weed restricted to limits.
And a sharing of disappointment sought to escape,
As one tries to run away unsuccessfully...
To free from responsibility.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7162.     

Killing Themselves

Stalled at the fantasy stage
With wishes window shopped
And credit cards near maxed out.
Whims on lay-aways
Have a few more payments left.
With a need that searches for a reason,
Why such an item is desperately wanted!
If it was such a 'steal'...
Why is it taking so long to pay for?
It's too late to change your mind...
You will not get your money back!
It is store policy to dupe you with accompanying BS!
And remember those threats you made,
Of never returning to shop there again?
Taking your business elsewhere?
Well...
It appears as though they have a record of your previous
Statements WITH your apologies attached!

'I am STILL upset!
Regardless of your record keeping!
And I want that known!
AND...
I think it extremely rude of you to suggest
Making payments on a fifty dollar sweater
In increments of two dollars and twenty-five cents per month,
Is ridiculous!
Who's money is it?
And am I NOT the customer?
You people are lucky I keep you in business!
My great grandfather swept these floors! '

And we are arrogant enough to believe...
Our sense of 'who' we are,
Is worthy of combat in battle!
We are arrogant enough to believe,
People the world over are praying to be in our presence?

I think they fight to stay away from us!
Even killing themselves to prove it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7163.     

King of The Pen and Prose

King of the pen and prose.
He's an ink blotter stopper...
Rimming to the brim with rhyme.
And unconfined to find a line,
To entwine the mind!

King of the pen and prose.
Profound with nouns...
And vowel sounds.
Tossing in an adjective,
To vibe with a verb he throws.

He 'is' the king of the pen and prose!
He teases when he wishes...
And uses depth to expose a certain flair!
Just to keep a reader guessing...
What is being solicited,
If he becomes explicit...
With a tongue in cheek penned affair!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kingdom Wishes

The cloak begins to slip off their backs.
No stepping aside or stepping to avoid,
Attacks.
This duo on top...
Squirm to bring chaos,
They started to a stop.
And their bark is sparking new revelations!

They market doom and holocaust scenes,
To demean the realities of common man!

They remain in conference with plans,
Not yet revealed!
No other ones are fearing their fate
With created anger and hate...
Like they do!
And the dwindling few that follow them
With zeal and nervousness!

And no one benefits from their command...
At all!
Accept those who rehearse...
Crawling after their fall from grace,
That has been disgraced with greed!

And they defy even those who turn their heads...
As they boldly slip into chambers of power!
To plant the hour of another disception.

They want to control all resources,
And rule the 'World'!
With might,
That has broken the backs
Of their own fighters!

They market doom...
And holocaust scenes to demean
The 'realities'
Of common man!
Who they believe can not see them...
Tossing lives away for purposes left noted,
In chauffeured limosines!

BUT...
They are not the ones who are on the horizon!
Those totally out of view of the ones who toast
Unconscious efforts.

God provides and rules HIS Kingdom!
Not those of kingdom wishes...
And in betrayal,
Nipping between caviar schemes
Plotting mindlessly their own disasters!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
