No One Can Remember Specifics

No one can remember specifics,
As to what they've done...
To affect the life of someone else.
Even though what was done had been premeditated.
And this depends on what career field they have chosen.

However...
If anyone had looked at them,
With a raised eyebrow...
When they were just five years old,
That person can tell anyone...
What day it was, the time and date.
Weather conditions.
The model of the cars driving past on the street.
And the color of someone's eyes wearing sunglasses,
Two blocks away.

Although...
They can not recall beating someone to a pulp,
In high school.
Or being locked up in juvenile detention for the deed,
Six months before their high school graduation.
And that might have happened,
Just a few years prior to a decision that was made...
To embark on a political career.
Believing they could erase if they so chose to do it,
Any and all of their participation in wickedness.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

No One Caring Enough to Carry Them On

There is a collective mindset.
An impression that rules with a limitedness.
It develops a pattern,
That implants an understanding...
'Nothing soon is going to change! '

And it doesn't.

The worse of it is celebrated!
In nostalgic updates redefined...
To ensure tired traditions are given a makeover,
In parades and community block dances.

The golden oldies.
Celebrated by the molding fogeys.

They clutch onto their memories...
Hoping time does not thaw them from the freeze,
They relive constantly!

These are small town activities!

While their children ignore them reminiscing...
They speak of their own childhoods,
As if wished they were there...ALIVE!
To leave themselves successfully unaccountable.
And that they have done...
To teach their children well!
From generation to generation.
Until a comprehension of values,
And the intention for them...
Are gone!

There is no one caring enough to carry them on!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

No One Comes To Leave Me With Tight Jaws

You didn't come to just visit!
Did you?
You came specifically to kill my joy.
I felt it when you began to assess,
With probing eyes.
As if to inspect.

I noticed you becoming annoyed,
When you said to me just last week...
My smile offended you.
And suspiciously I extended a welcome,
For you to come to my home.
And together we would sit and chat.
But you had more on your mind than that.

You didn't come to just visit!
Did you?
You came specifically to kill my joy.
And when you left...
So happy I was to have stored some happiness,
Frozen in my 'frig' to quickly thaw!

Oh no.
No one comes to leave me with tight jaws.
Or come to dump their junk to funk me.
I'll funk alone in my home if I wish,
With no need for assistance.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

No One Comprehends

To say with hollow meaning,
Something thought to be believed...
Leaves many bewildered,
By the degree of shallowness
Only one dares to wear upon one's chest.
As profound sentiments,
Spoken.
But no one comprehends,
On the surface.
Or gives time to 'get'
Even if depth is suspected.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
