Zip It

You can not tell people
Who have been trapped and raise on crap.
That they are also ignorant, fat and lazy!
Since those that are...
Will not appreciate that!

There is a fine line between honesty and disrespect.
To say, 'Hey you, fat ass! '
May not get the response one expects.
Or even to say to someone walking down the street...
'Do you mind standing still for one moment?
The ground is shaking,
And its causing my nose to bleed! '

No one will regard this as a compliment at all!
Nor a snide remark behind their backs...
'Is there an eclipse of the Sun?
That has darkened the sky,
To cause night to come...
And suddenly fall? '

This is not nice,
To say behind one with a tremendous butt!
Nor interrupting them with rude comments to ask...
If they would like a ride from a truck,
To help them speed up their strut!

Just don't say nothing at all.
And be thankful you are not responsible to pay,
For their grocery or medical bills!
Knowing you can barely pay your own!
And lifestyles are getting out of touch.
Making everyone ill!

Some things observed are better left as they are.
With no need of a spoken word to be heard.

'Zip it!
There is need to be obscene.
As if making announcements...
On a tour of new museum exhibits!
Just zip it! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

(Further Away) From The Year Two Thousand and Eight

As we move further away,
From the year two thousand and eight.
As is the custom to celebrate it.
There will be more who will come,
To appreciate the year...
They were shakened awake.
Realizing they were not forced,
To participate...
In satisfying a temporary greed,
Nibbled with a teasing eventually satiated.
And...
Many caught up in the feeding of this feast...
Wished they had more patience and waited!
To examine the crooks who gleefully stuffed them...
With a wonderful presentation of deceit on their plates!

'Hmmm...
Would you pass me more lies, please!
What do you mean 'which ones'?
The best ones,
Of course.
What do you mean...
You've 'run out' of 'those'?
They were delicious!
I demand an explanation.
Immediately! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

~60~

It doesn't seem like it...
But I'll be 60 soon!
Sixty years
Of some heartbreak,
And many cheers...
To excite me with many passed moons!

Oh yes...
And friends of mine,
Who know I've spent years at '49'
Appear to show they are upset
With those who guess I'm '39'.

Although they wont say
They wish they had a youthful glow,
To display...
They grunt from sore joints
Doing their exercises each day!

Getting older for some...
Makes them want to sit down and cry!
Not me!
Not today!
Not as long as I can pass,
For a young and 'stunning'...
Goodlooking '55'!

Honest...I'm serious!

And I'm so glad no one's around to watch...
How I get 'this' Frankenstein to come alive,
With every limb cracking without a stop!
Especially early in the morning,
When I myself want to run and hide!
But I thank God each day...
Even if I have to hop from side to side!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A Spoiled Child

A spoiled child will always believe,
Lieing has its benefits.
Even when they age,
To mask their insecurities...
A spoiled child will always believe,
Lieing has its benefits.
Only to ruin,
All of their relationships.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
