Neutered Boots

Neutered Boots,
Looked at me as if I knew...
The agony of losing,
Jewels once cherished.
Like a bonding of a maleness,
Had been sliced and diced.
And I was petting him gently...
Just trying to be nice.

But Boots had never been kneed,
In the groin.
Or have an affection wished dismissed,
By someone close Boots had lived with.

Boots is a kitten!
He'll get over it.
However...
Not too many other cats,
Will come to appreciate...
Where Boots is at.
And Boots will have to learn that...
On his own!

Never Accepted What Their Eyes Have Shown

Something in their heads,
Have them programmed to believe...
They should not respect themselves.
Or expect they can and could achieve.

Something missing in their heads,
Should have connected them to a maturity.
Something that recognized,
Who should be responsible...
And accountable for their activities.

Something in their minds,
Should have made eye contact with themselves.
Something said or they did not see...
A reflection of themselves yet!
One accepted and believed.

Something has left.
And will never return.
Something that should have been taught.
But for them,
Never to be learned!
And that is why they hide from themselves.
They dislike and despise what they see!
And they have never accepted,
What their eyes have shown!
They are afraid to be who they are.
Even alone!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Never Again

Once it has been peeled,
It will never be the same.
The feel of it is gone!
Even with a jacket and tie,
It will never again be recognized...
As an apple,
For anyone to eye as it was!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Never Again To Use Their Stingers

One reluctant to sting,
May choose to do so...
With a stinging done to stun,
Those stung...
Never again to use their stingers,
Inappropriately.
Or...
Without just cause,
To initiate their provocation!

A sizzling butt is painful.
How do I know this?

'Geeesshhh, man!
Pull up your drawers.'

I'm lucky.
Not everyone is given a chance,
To go through a healing.

And a pinch of a burning felt,
May be the beginning...
Of an eternal flame,
That remains blazing.

It is best not to digest,
With interest...
What one hears,
From the lips of others!

Investigate first...
Before becoming caught up,
In the middle of a heat...
Without an escape to exit.

These experiences and more,
Cools quickly...
A hot head once singed,
But saved by the process...
Of patient observation and listening.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
