Keepin'-Th'Big-Ball Bouncin'

Caught up in the nonsense.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.

And waiting for some annoucement...
To stop that loud sound that pounds!

Caught up in the nonsense.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.

Yet hypnotized to the aspect,
Folks stay ready to pounce.
But no one moves to unload the packs,
Stacked on their backs.
Mounting are their burdens,
And some like it like that!

Caught up in the nonsense.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.

Bitten lips,
Bleeding blood.
Taking it.
With the moaning.

Sighing in their pain with pleas...
As if they seek someone to please.
And squeezing sweat from handkerchieves...
In fields they're proud to plow,
But gone!

Caught up in the nonsense.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.

With a dragging of their feet...
To feed defeat on urban streets.
And reminiscing this so easy,
As if this beat succeeds.
And it does.

A nothingness achieved...
Like this does.

Caught up in the nonsense.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncing.
And...
A nothingness achieved,
Like this does.

Ahhhh...bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Ahhhh...bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Ahhhh...bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Ahhhh...bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'
Keepin'-th'big-ball bouncin'

And nothing gets achieved...

Kept Agendas Prioritized For Devilment

Many try to deny...
That demon that sits within them.
Hiding behind alibis disguised.
In church pews...
To bow,
Their embittered heads.
To mask their lies.

With truth sent away.
And blocked from regaining,
An entrance to stay.
Kept agendas prioritized for devilment...
Betrays the image,
Falsely on display.

Many try to deny...
That demon that sits within them.
Hiding behind alibis disguised.
In church pews...
To bow,
Their embittered heads.
To mask their lies.

And revenge with vindictiveness,
Sits in masquerade.
As hypocrites gather together...
Quoting from scriptures,
To protect their evil ways!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kept And Accepted

When will all the ignorance in existence,
Be admitted to have it end?

'If I were you I'd be more cautious,
And extremely careful...
Who you call ignorant.
Those remarks are offensive.
Especially here.
People are sensitive,
As to how what they value...
To be interpreted by others to depict.'

I see.

'We protect and respect our differences,
By the setting up of fences.
And everyone enjoys living in separate divisions,
Our ancestors left to us in printed documents...
To recommend the guaranteeing of peace.'

I see.

'And this was not done for anyone to come,
To say what we have obeyed to do for centuries...
Is ignorant.
So take your offensive remarks and leave.'

I see.

'No you don't.
If you did,
You would not confuse progress,
With steps we have taken...
To ensure our entitlements are kept,
AND accepted to protect...
For the benefit of our children and theirs.'

I see.

'That you may.
However...
You will never understand our ways,
That will stay and remain isolated.'

I see.
Perhaps you are right.
This is more like defending one's mental illness.
And your doing of it is not so isolated anymore.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kept As Traps To Distract

When one grows up in the land of demons,
And knowing them for who they are...
It is always a struggle from the start,
To break free from their deceptions.
Since they will try to convince others they know you...
To keep subservience in the way.
And their ideals kept as traps to distract,
From their true identity.
But those who see clear through this...
Are not addicted to any of it!
And keep their missions to seek truth...
Real!

'Why do you keep re-enforcing this vision? '

To keep myself from falling to sleep.
And lulled back into an acceptable darkness.

'But we all have come from darkness.'

I'm speaking of the mind!
Not of body.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
