Not In a Rose Giving Mood

When I tell you to kiss my ass...
I am not in a rose giving mood,
At the moment!
That should be obvious.
So don't ask if I want a breath mint,
When my fangs are exposed!
AND when you 'do' see them...
Try to connect 'that' to something you've done!
That's called communicating one on one!
You are not connecting with the 'cause and effect'
Principle at all.
But you enjoy inflicting me with a bad reputation.
Others do not see your participation.
Your public sweetness sickens!

And how that is applied?
They should be here to get a taste,
Of your 'venom'!
When that happens...
They then should decide,
Where to hide after dusk and moonlight!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Not In Situations Like These

You must accept,
Keeping your eye on them.
Has loyalty and trust,
Completely close up your suspicions?

Has your luck been jeopardized,
By freely tossed flying lies?
And those folks don't know why they despise,
Or don't.
Their genes have them in motion.

Have you ever been introduced,
By resumι and name?
Latest footsteps you've made.
Where they were laid,
And who was impressed?
And quickly you scan over yourself,
To either approve or make excuses,
About how you are dressed.

'I don't usually look a mess! '

You must accept,
Keeping your eye on them.
Has loyalty and trust,
Completely close up your suspicions?
Probably not.
Not in situations like these.

Not In The Mood To Laugh

Some use a different approach,
On those choosing to insist...
Upon using the same old tired tactics,
To provoke others folks as if to joke.

And the ones not accustomed,
To getting attention...
Perceive upon the getting of it,
They've been chosen specifically...
To become obnoxious.
And the doing to be idiots has been approved.

And those using a different approach,
Let them continue...
With allowing all of their vanity exposed.
Especially those who impose unlimited disrespect,
Until they are shown what they did not expect.

'What you did really offended me.
You didn't have to do that to me so publicly.
You should have known I was joking.'

~Really?
And when were you going to notice,
I was not in the mood to laugh?
And...
At my expense.
I suggest and recommend,
If you should do that again...
Let me know you are going to entertain,
And I will be prepared to charge admission.~

'Why are you so 'sensitive'? '

~There are times when I am thrown,
Unexpectedly to be highlighted in spotlight...
I am not the one seeking the attention that's given.
However...
If it's going to be done without my giving consent,
I will take advantage to return to me what has been sent.
And...
If you are offended,
Keep what you give to do to others to yourself.~

Not In The Next Few Chapters

I remember how 'old' people seemed,
When they were in their twenties.
And I was then a child...
With a wish to be a teenager.
And I remember walking on my toes,
Wanting to be taller than I was.
Or at least keep up with my father,
Whenever he walked to the neighborhood store.
And I'd walk behind him,
Thinking he was a giant.

And when I then became thirteen,
And my sister Mimmie was still eleven...
I got very bossy.
We were both 'latchkey' kids and...
Well,
I was grown...
I thought.
And I made sure she did things around our apartment,
I just was too 'grown' to do.
Like sweep the floors while I looked at TV.
She hated me.
I didn't care.

I remember being eighteen and being called a 'rainbow',
As the rest of the enlisted boy/men stood at attention...
After arriving at Lackland Air Force Base,
In San Antonio, Texas.
We were called 'rainbow'
Because we were still in our 'civilian' clothes...
And instantly demeaned.
That was their way of making sure we understood,
We were in the military and mom and daddy weren't around.
We were guaranteed to be made full fledged men.

Thirty came in a hurry.
And I had already been divorced and remarried.
And that was in 1977.

I don't know 'why' I didn't like my 40's!
Maybe because they came and went too quickly.
And I was 'still' passing for the age of twenty-five.
That didn't last too long.
In 1987 I got a phone call from my mother,
Telling me my dad was ill and she was concerned.
So as the eldest and only son,
I thought I would leave San Antonio, Texas...
Where I made my home then,
And make a quick weekend trip back to Hartford, Connecticut.

Well...
One very long weekend later,
It is now close to 2011.
My 40's and 50's were a blur.
And today at 63...
With both my parents deceased,
I am just NOW able to say,
I can enjoy every moment of my life consciously.
And feeling a whole lot younger than I look.
I know this may sound crazy, but...
I've got to relive something that I've missed,
Between my 40's and 50's I can remember...
Other than my parents passing away,
And my getting a divorce.
That was number two.
And...
With God's blessing,
I 'hope' not to do a number three.

Not in the next 'few' chapters I hope to write!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
