  7357.     

In Their Birthday Suits

Cuckoo a silly bird,
Heard at early dawning.
Shakens those awake,
With a yawning that they make.
And...
Sunrise begins to lift,
Up on the horizon.
People rub their eyes,
To begin their routined lives.

In their birthday suits,
Some wish they could wear all day.
Naked like a rooster when the crowing gets done.
To do all their chores without impressing someone.
Trying not to duplicate what was worn yesterday.

In their birthday suits,
Some wish they could wear all day.
Lazy they are feeling,
With the expense to keep clothes clean.
Knowing where they work it seems...
The only purpose to show up is just to be seen.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7358.     

In Their Interest To Protest

The only ones blamed for emptying the cookie jar,
Are the ones who came with attempts to explain...
With a doing of their best to correct the situation.
And yet...
Those who assisted with the theft and knew the thieves,
Have decided it is in their interest to protest with the rest.
While continuing to profess being diseased by amnesia!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7359.     

In Their Minds

He may not win an election,
To lead a country.
Solely based on the color of his skin.

But he has shown what he can do brilliantly!
And that is represent himself,
With a poise and dignity.
Whether it is in speeches he gives,
Or an insight he has while standing on his feet.
Wherever he travels to parts of the world he is in!
We have to give him that!

And he does this all,
Without an appearance of a boombox,
Jive language or in shorts to show...
He plays terrific basketball!
Proving he can do these things,
Although he can upset some with his arrogance...
Who are extremely appalled.

Afterall...
There are many who oppose him.
Knowing 'they' are the ones he should defend.
If he would just dropp the notion of becoming president...
And with them become their point guard.
To help them secure championships!

In their minds what other reason,
Does he have to exist?
And assisting in winning all the games.
To bring a collective attention to their 'gifts'.

'That is better stated.
I personally still find it offensive...
But it is easier to take,
Than that last crude statement you made, Jesse!
However...
This one has less jealousy detected.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7360.     

In Their Own Backyards

The demons find themselves...
Laughed at and ridiculed,
By those unbridled...
To do so,
In their own backyards.
And become appalled and offended,
By their own reflections displayed.
Their own wickedness...
Catches them unmasked.

'How dare a mocking,
When we are not parading in masquerade.
I thought 'they' were with 'us'? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
