Least of My Concerns

I am often associated with some affiliation of some kind.

'What faith are you?
What are your beliefs?
What religion do you practice?
And which group influences your mental outreach?
Are you Christian or Muslim?
Or both? '

HUH?
And when I reveal I do not read as much as I should,
That discredits their preconceived assumptions.
I have an identity embraced from my own point of view.

'Where do you get your ideas? '

Which ones?

'You know...
THOSE ideas? '

I don't understand.
Help me comprehend.
Ideas associated with thought and that process?
Which ones?
My acceptance of a Higher Intelligence,
That keeps me connected.
Or...
My ability to appear calm, cool and collected,
When someone 'disconnected'...
Assumes my quality of life,
Does not reflect a materialism...
They can focus into and respect?

Suppose I told you,
I am fully aware of my flaws and blemishes?
And chasing materialism and the affects of it,
Is the least of my concerns.

'That's what I'm asking.
Where do you get that?
You have such a knack for humor.
It is a blend of sarcasm AND cynicism.
How do you do that?
You're funny! '

Oh, I'm hysterical!
Literally.
I was declared out of my mind years ago.
AND...frankly,
With acknowledgement.

And, check this out...
Expressing my gratefulness to God on a daily basis.
For all of the gifts I've been given.

'You should do stand up comedy.
Seriously.
You are one funny dude! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave Before You Bleed

If I said pack it up
And put it in a truck!
Drive away from me forever
Since my doors to you will be shut!
Would you think I was serious,
If I called the police on you?
When I told you 'I-have-had-it'...
Were you waiting for me to scream,
And yell too?
There is nothing about a cheat,
I want around me creeping!
You better leave before you bleed...
And be glad for every dropp of blood you're keeping!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave Behind The Humdrum

Get ready for the future that is to come.
Get ready...
To leave behind the humdrum.
Get ready for the future that is to come.
And leave behind...
All monotony that can be quite dull.
Leave behind,
That dulling getting thick in your skull.

Get ready for the future that is to come.
Get ready...
To leave behind the humdrum.
Get ready for the future that is to come.
And leave behind...
All monotony that can be quite dull.
Leave behind,
That dulling getting thick in your skull.

Anyone can rid of anything that they wish,
If they wanted with a getting rid of it.
Get ready...
To leave behind the humdrum.
Get ready for the future that is to come.
Get ready...
To leave behind the humdrum.
And know...
Anyone can rid of anything that they wish,
If they wanted with a getting rid of it.
To know...
Anyone can rid of anything that they wish,
If they wanted with a getting rid of it.

Get ready for the future that is to come.
Get ready...
To leave behind the humdrum.
Get ready for the future that is to come.
And leave behind...
All monotony that can be quite dull.
Leave behind,
That dulling getting thick in your skull.
And know...
Anyone can rid of anything that they wish,
If they wanted with a getting rid of it.

Leave Behind What's Stinking

Get rid of that stagnation that leaves a stench.
With a letting go of your hold,
Growing old and molding.
Get rid of that stagnation that leaves a stench,
And...
Do it inch by inch,
To leave behind what is stinking.

Those bad attitudes to validate you're in a mood,
Leave behind what's stinking.
You don't need them to explain everything you do,
Leave behind what's stinking.
Inch by inch you will be convinced...
It's not you but the environment.

Get rid of that stagnation that leaves a stench.
With a letting go of your hold,
Growing old and molding.
Get rid of that stagnation that leaves a stench,
And...
Do it inch by inch,
To leave behind what's stinking.

Remove it from your mind and you will find the link,
That stinks.
And you will let go of the hold,
To easily let that mold go...
With a rolling off your shoulders.

Those bad attitudes to validate you're in a mood,
Leave behind what's stinking.
You don't need them to explain everything you do,
Leave behind what's stinking.
Inch by inch you will be convinced...
It's not you but the environment.
