If I Began To Distrust

I shouldn't trust as much.
But I feel I must.
If I began to distrust,
Would purpose would my kept faith serve?

If I Can Learn A Few Lessons So Can You

You did not ruin my life,
By proving to me you can ruin yours.
Nor do you get from me any sympathy.
My empathy years ago you ignored.
And I have no desire to explore your destitution.
Or offer solutions with advice.
Why? And for what reasons?
Hmmm?

Remember you once told me I was 'nuthin'?
While you strolled passed me wearing spit shined shoes.
And smelling nice.
Like the atmosphere was cologned?

And sporting the latest fashions...
As you supported materialism as your way of life.
And you satisfied that appetite very well.
I remember you then and saying with laughter...
'People like you aren't worth the time spent in hell! '
And look at you now...
Trying to convince me of that!

You did not ruin my life,
By proving to me you can ruin yours.
Nor do you get from me any sympathy.
Not the way you applied your indignities,
At the expense of my integrity.

My empathy years ago you ignored.
And I have no desire to explore your destitution.
Or offer solutions with advice.
You caught me in a bad mood.
And I am not about to mask it to play nice!

No!
Don't try attempts to leech,
Upon my good graces.

If I can learn a few lessons,
So can you!
And you look as if you are learning one right now!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I Can Not Fight With Pen

If I can not fight with pen,
And motivate you to curtail your woes...
And wickedness,
Then by all means...
Proceed with your thieving ways.
If I can not convince...
Then the power of my pen,
Is meaningless!

**LOL**

'Are you serious?
Shakespeare...
We are hoodlums,
Crooks.
Lowlife common thieves.
What makes you believe,
We do not enjoy this?

Now...
What I will recommend,
Is that you step aside before we break your nose.
With a 'Wherefore art thou, knockout! '
You got that? '

Hey...
I just thought I'd try something fresh.
You know...
A different approach?
To do as much as I can,
To aid the end of the cycle of crime.

'Oh yeah?
Well you came close to getting pistol whipped.
Now get out of the way...
With a good 'adieu' and safe passage.'

You sound like you know a little bit about Shakespeare?

'Man,
I've got a Doctorate degree from Harvard.
And you've got a pen to try to convince me,
Times have change!
I know about that.
Now scat...
Unless you want to duel? '

**LOL**

'You with 'pen'?
And me with... gun and bul-lays.'

**LOL**

'Come on guys.
Who knew this would turn out to be comedy night.'

~Did you see the ruffled shirt,
And those knickers that guy was wearing?
I know I shouldn't have smoked that joint.~

**LOL**

'Come on.
Let's get out of here before the cops find us.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I Condoned The Making For Them Impressions

I often wanted and wished,
To have a support of a lover.
Or someone I trusted,
Who expressed an interest...
To realize the doing of this,
Would provide the both of us...
With benefits to exchange.

But those who seek,
Relationships to compete...
Will time and again ask upon meeting,
What it is I have, where I live...
To then scrutinize my appearance,
As if to prioritize preferences they keep.

And unfortunately...
These are the people I know I would feel alone,
If I condoned the making for them impressions.

I seek a lover, a friend...
Not confinement to be rehabilitated,
To then be left and unappreciated.
Like many of them have done to others,
Before uncovering to realize...
A prize they could have had,
Has to be unwrapped prior to deciding...
What the worth is below an assumed surface.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
