A Thing Of The Past And Obsolete

There are those dissatisfied,
With current government policies.
And wish to take it upon themselves,
To return to wholesome qualities.

But guess what?
Those who chose to participate,
In blatant corruption and greed...
Have waited too late.

And their needs by those they've made elite...
Have been ignored.
And today those they've trusted,
Consider them and their values mistreated...
A thing of the past and obsolete.

There are those dissatisfied,
With current government policies.
And wish to take it upon themselves,
To return to wholesome qualities.

But guess what?
The time for them to wake up...
Has gone.
Just like the humming,
Of a favorite song once sung.
Never again in these times to belong...
To anyone with wishes to hear or sing,
Those old songs sung with heartfelt reminiscing.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A 'Thing' To Be Brushed Away

Anyone allowing themselves,
To be made useless...
With the producing of excuses,
Has reduced a blessing to them given...
As a 'thing' to be brush away.
With no faith in self that stays.

That moment anyone accepted,
A noticeable sign of rejection...
With a seeking from within,
For an approval to fit in...
Began for them the beginning to portray,
Themselves as a willing victim.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  799.     

A Thorough And Complete Irrigation

Just how stagnant, backed up and polluted,
Is the thinking in those country?

'One conversation.
That's all anyone will need,
To determind there has never been a flow...
Ongoing to flush out the rust.
It's all there...
Plugged up with stuff like raw sewage.
Kept to recycle in their minds.'

What can be done to undo this with a solution?

'A thorough and complete irrigation.'

And...
If that should fail?

'Well...
No one can make happen,
What time has already given to then pass on...
Has allowed.'

What do you mean by that?

'Trolley cars use to run up and down these streets.
Many years ago.'

And your point is?

Go over there,
And tell anyone standing...
You wish to wait for the next trolley to come.
And ask where you should wait.
Someone will then ask...
'Are the trolleys still running?
I thought they replaced those with buses? '

So what are you saying?
They are a little bit slow?

'That's a very good question.
Go over there and ask them.
I am sure they will let you know...
Just how slow.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A Timelessness Spent in Shared Regret

If I thought any part of yesterday I lived,
Had existing benefits for me...
I'd be still there living in it.
Like many nonbelieving,
Time without their participation...
Continues to move on.
And does so to leave those,
Doing exactly what they please.

And the ones who chose not to grow...
With a hope that their grasp,
On times they would like to keep unchanged...
Will convince others,
Who are equally blessed with immaturity!
Have only one thing to look forward to.
The guaranteed benefits of expressing,
A timelessness spent in shared regret.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
