  797.     

Another Year Will Be Remembered

And as October with each day grows,
With leaves coloring the trees...
Slowly bringing a beautiful Fall,
To a close.
The holidays with anticipation comes.
And soon another year,
Will be remembered by many...
As 'that' special one,
That came to go...
So quickly!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Appetizers Laced

Dozing!
After a feast that fattened their bodies,
And dulling their minds.
They all awakened to find...
Someone demanding those times,
Would be left behind them now.

Struggling to their feet...
Some dazed,
Others amazed those days
Had actually gone.
With their cupboards depleted.
And brooms and mops left,
For them to use to sweep and clean.

As someone they never respected...
and certainly did not expect.
Showed up upon the scene.
Loudly proclaiming,
What from them is expected!
And the days ahead will be long and lean.

Jaws dropped in shock!
To learn they were asked to serve.
Or discover themselves deserted.
Since those who had fed them,
And watched them sleep...
Were treating them with doses,
Of appetizers laced with deceit and treason.
While slipping through exits.
Hoping to leave unnoticed...
Without making a sound or peep!

'The thieves have stolen the cheese.
The Provolone, Swiss and American
Lox and Bagels too! '
Announced the leader,
Of the new maintenance crew.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Approve With Each Nibble As You Taste It

Never try to justify,
The kind of life...
You like!

Feel comfortable and live it.

Never try to justify,
The kind of life...
You like!

Feel comfortable and live it.

What you choose for you and do,
Feel comfortable and live it.
No one but you can be you but you.
And make that choice to do what you choose.
With a taking of a bite out of life to taste.
Savoring it and enjoying this too!

Never try to justify,
The kind of life...
You like!

Feel comfortable and live it.

Never try to justify,
The kind of life...
You like!

Feel comfortable and live it.

What you choose for you to do,
Feel comfortable and live it.
No one but you can truly approve...
With each nibble as you taste it,
Without limits.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  800.     

Are You Expecting Me To Care?

Applying the brakes to escape,
The fast pace of a hectic life...
One has lived to experience,
A rushing through it as if this is meant...
To address impressions one attempts to make,
Stops when one decides to begin to appreciate...
A peace of mind one finds,
That has finally come their way one day.
And with a praying done,
It is hoped this peace with them stays.

'Whatever that is you have,
Where can I get some?
What price did you pay?
Is it available to anyone? '

I'm sure it is.

'Why are you showing me your scrapped knees? '

Oh.
That's nothing.
I would take you to that brick wall,
Where I would go to hit my head against.
But thanks be to God and God only,
That building was torn down.
Before my brains were splattered on it.

'Seriously.
I am asking you a serious question.
And all you can give to me are jokes? '

See my smile?
And these perfectly set and gleaming teeth?
Years ago I left the original ones,
In a mangled car I drove into a telephone pole.
And that was not my intention.
I went to reach for a strawberry milkshake,
That spilled all over me.
In those few seconds I forgot I was driving.

'Are you expecting me to believe,
Your joy and happiness began 'then'?
With that peace of mind you seem to have received?
Are you expecting me to believe that? '

No offense!
But are you expecting me to care?
However...
I do suspect there are less expensive routes to take.
I just happen to be aware of which events got me there.
And the price for each 'mistake' I made.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
