Let's Pretend

Never will there be an accepted and credible,
Life lived on other planets to exist.
This would reveal a truth that had been deluded,
By those with enforced and kept beliefs...
The Earth we feed and leech upon,
Is unique and created to keep reality out of reach.
Although many are awakening from a deep sleep,
To find themselves wondering...
What it is they witness to see in the skies,
Is more often than not...
Denied as possible and covered up behind lies.

'What on EARTH is THAT? '

~Well...
First of all,
Whatever it is...
Is not of this Earth.
Therefore, the reality of it, does not exist.~

'You are right.
Let's pretend it is not noticed.
Let's pretend like we are accustomed to do.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's Review The Inventory

Back up!
Let's review the inventory.
It is not okay,
For you to create...
What you believe takes place,
In my life.
Without an invoice or evidence,
To prove you have taken stock...
Of how I live and apply,
My ongoing activities.
But others perceive,
You to be a person of tact.

And I find that laughable.
Now...
If you wish to address,
Me personally...
With your issues.
I would suggest you do that.
To prevent your own embarrassment.
Before it is exposed you are way off track.

Back up!
Let's review the inventory.
You have made claims,
Released to speak about me...
As if they were facts.
But nothing I've supplied,
Promotes your stabbing me in my back.
Unless you seek with me a confrontation?
And verbal attacks to satisfy a shouting match,
I have long left to explore the benefits of maturity.
And plenty of that I will upon you unpack!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's Set This Record Straight

Let's set this record straight!
Your foundations...
Structured with tainted funds!
And on the backs of those you allowed to suffer...
In the midst of your deceit and thirst for greed,
Has never attracted me.
That is why I have kept my appearances limited.
And as far away as possible!
I am not after a position as your doorman.
To clown or jester with your nouveau riche friends.
Some recently recovering from negrophobia!

Others who believe you have prestige,
To bestow upon them?
Is fine!
That just ain't me!
I do not object to anyone's ignorance.
Whether temporarily applied or not!
Nor do I needlessly need to stand in line,
To receive that kind of acknowledgement!
Especially from a known oppressor of my attempts,
To live my life without approved limitations!
Nor smiling like I am the master's boot shiner,
Do you get from me.
I have too long addressed my own identity...
With little assistance,
And regretful heckling from my own kin.
Also absent of consciousness.

This is reality!
Not an ex-slave speaking from the grave!
Or an ancestor spirited,
From under some suburban subdivision!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's Talk

Let's talk.

'Okay.
But...
Don't we do that everyday? '

We do.
But today?
Let's try doing something.

'Like what? '

Today...
Let's not talk about ourselves.
Our neighbors.
Or the choices they make,
To live the lives they choose.
Or who did what to who,
To leave us gossiping about it.

'Gee. Can we? '

Let's not talk about politics.
Or those with different religious beliefs.
Who should be more discipline
Or whose children are just like them.
And let's not talk about the economy.
Or who we believe is responsible for the deficit.
Let's not even discuss our own distrust of others.
Or who deceives, lies and cheats,
To leave the grieving appalled and up at nights without sleep.

'Then what is there left for us to do? '

Perhaps we can sit, relax and enjoy each other's company?

'Where do we begin?
We've never done that before.'

Let's talk.
And just 'maybe' we will uncover and find,
Something about life we actually like.
And keep that in our minds each time we meet.

'To begin talking about something positive? '

Why not?

'And do with an effort as if it's a choice?
Do you realize how difficult that is? '

Let's try it.
Let's make the attempt.

'I have nothing to say.'

That's a start.
Let's see how long we can keep it that way.

'But...
There will be nothing but silence.
It will be quiet.
It will be...'

Peaceful, quiet and enjoyed.

'Well...
Let's try it.
Let's make the attempt.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
