Looking To Bargain

Satisfaction came to me one day...
And it wasn't discounted or marked down.
From a price I originally could not afford.
It came to me priceless,
Fresh and packaged.
I'm glad it came to me that way.
I was looking to bargain my senses,
On something cheap...
Probably used,
And maybe borrowed.
I wasn't desperate!
I do want to make that clear.
However...
I was thisclose to it!
It was panting on my neck.
That's how close I had been.
I could almost feel the teeth marks...
Biting into my unconcerned flesh.
I was a mess.
I was reaching to treat a temporary craving,
When I was suddenly hit in the head...
By a piece of falling common sense!
I grabbed onto it quickly.
I knew what it was immediately!
I had used it once before...
And 'lost' it in a fit of rage!
Certainly something I'm not proud of,
BUT!
I know when I've been blessed,
To discover a rare find!
And I'm so proud of it...
I'm going to show it off as often as I can!
Hopefully,
No one will ask me how I got it!
I wouldn't be able to tell them where.
I'll just let them know it's mine!
And it's not up for trade!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Looking To Start An Argument

Why is it that those pigeon-toed,
Walk like ducks with their butts stuck up?

'What has that got to do with anthropology? '

A lot.
Think about it.

'No...
I am not! '

IF you were a true Christian,
You would know these things.

'You're really looking to start an argument,
Aren't you?
Your total approach doesn't make any sense.'

Who said I was a Christian?
Even though I may possess those traits.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Looking Uncomfortable

Why didn't you give me a signal?
Before I opened my mouth.
Did you see the picture of their first grandchild,
Before I did?

'Yes, I did.
But your reaction?
Was really out of line.
If you thought the child,
Looked unusual...
You should not have exclaimed,
The child looked like a baboon.
Wrapped too tightly in that blanket.
Looking uncomfortable.
I thought it myself!
But did I say anything? '

No.
No you did not.
But that comment you made,
About taking your children to the zoo...
This weekend,
Wasn't appropriate either.

'That had nothing to do with it.
I take my children to the zoo every weekend.
In fact...
They know that.
Before you appeared...
That had been the conversation.
And...
We were all going before you showed up.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Loopholes

It's known and shown,
Those habits grown.

You come too early,
And you...
Announce you can't stay late.
But then,
Every minute you're around...
You hesitate to conversate.

What is it you're wishing?
Should we investigate?
Are you wishing we dish less?
Does this irritate?

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
You need to lick them quick.
Get rid of those sitting to nitpick.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

It's known and shown,
Those habits grown.

What is it you're wishing?
Should we investigate?
Are you wishing we dish less?
Does this irritate?

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
You need to lick them quick.
Get rid of those sitting to nitpick.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

Get rid of those loopholes,
Admit they make you sick!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
