Jackass

You wish me to be specific?
Like an island in the Pacific?
You wish me to lay it on the line?
To ease and bring a comfort,
To your confused mind?
Okay...
I will!
Your ignorance is not unique.
Your inability to comprehend...
Is commonly found upon these streets.
And your clinched fists,
With the gritting of bared teeth...
Is overdone.
Protecting what has long been observed,
You should do your best to overcome.
But like the others with wishes to protect themselves...
You're boring with excuses,
You use to self induce.
I see it for what it is.
Consider my comments as positive!
I am not the one from you or it to run.
You asked,
Jackass!
Why do you look at me as if you are stunned?
What did you think I would offer you?
A cup of coffee with cream and sugar?
Perhaps gossip over tea...
As we eat cinnamon buns?
I don't take time for that!
Or numb my head by smoking 'joints'.
But...
If you've got one...
I'll share it with you!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Jaded

Jaded...
By fading consequences
Held onto like treasured jewels.
But I do not sparkle within,
Or radiate a gladness
Shown on the surface...
And polished with pretense!

Jaded...
A product of delusion
Manifested by observation
And a fixed comfort zone.
Transfixed and smothering!
I run to escape...
But no one chases!
I hide to shelter myself,
From myself!

I'm jaded!
Corralled and fenced in
Behind gates I alone can unlock!
I have the keys in my pocket.
If I should open them...
Someone else may find my space,
And free it of complaint!
And that is my biggest fear.

I'm jaded.
With a need to hold onto something real!
Exhausted and left unchallenged.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Jail Bait

Raising jail bait!
Little boys trained...
To be rough and tough from birth.
With no other skills learned on urban streets...
Where they are greeted by meanness.
And taught to lie.
Become deceitful.
Steal, hussle and cheat.

And an incarceration is done!
If not chased and shot down...
By the eagerness of police,
To shoot with a deadly aim...
With tasers,
And/or with high powered guns!

Raising jail bait...
With a taste for defeatism,
Blended with a craving for self hate.
And 'scholars' have spent generations in debate...
Seeking outsiders with drafted graphics,
To explain for all the coming fate!
But no one listening wishes to hear what is clear.
Since what is needed and proposed...
Is not delivered on a sugar coated plated!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Je Veux que Trop Aime!

Je veux que trop aime!

Trop je veux,
La paix et le bonheur partag้.
Quelqu'un pour se soucier,
Avec une loyaut้ consacr้e.

Trop je veux,
Quelqu'un qui est lเ.
Comme je serais.

Je veux que trop aime!

Trop je veux,
Quelqu'un pour communiquer,
Et comprenez avec cela mentionn้.

Trop je veux,
Quelqu'un qui a le temps,
Sans feindre pour donner et prendre.

Je veux que trop aime!

Trop je veux,
Quelqu'un qui d้sire une vie de paix.
Et pas une vie ensemble pass้e...
Dans le chagrin de coeur sans condition pour rendre.

Comme ceux dans les rapports,
Les vœux d'eux pour finir.
Donc ils iront alors finalement faire seperate.
Trouver quel vrai amour pour eux signifie de nouveau!
Je veux que trop aime.

Grandir comme il est destin้.
Et pas la pause pour tomber du tout!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
