Older They Grow But Not Up

Older they grow,
But not up!

Many never experience a maturity.
Raised on entertaining limited thoughts.
And few have abilities,
To comprehend little of what they read.
Or take the responsibility,
To hold themselves accountable...
For actions begun and those they leave.

Older they grow,
But not up!

And demands they make,
To satisfy their spoiled ways.
Since no one around them wants to hear them fuss.
Realizing not one of those fussers who also cuss,
Wants to take a position,
To make a decisive decision.

Since accusations are prioritized in their lives lived,
As a must.
And expectations are less for them.
For those exposed to them growing older...
Knowing these minds have no time left.
For them to show a growing up,
With a thoughtfulness.

Older they may grow...
But for them it sure is not up!

Ominous Places

Ominous places,
With faces hard to leave...
Can,
Introduce a certain weakness...
Temptating to be pleased.

And...
Those ominous places,
Will provide one a company.
That...
Later one will regret,
As a fix that's wished and needed.

Ominous places,
With faces hard to leave...
Can,
Introduce a certain weakness...
Temptating to be pleased.

And...
Those ominous places,
Will provide one a company.
That...
Later one will regret,
As a fix that's wished and needed.
But...
Once condoned,
Can never be left alone.

Those ominous places,

As a fix that's wished and needed.
But...
Once condoned,

But...

Can never be left alone.
But...
Once condoned,
Can never be left alone.
To be...
Left alone!

On a B4 Real Express

Apologizing those 'mistakes' made,
To erase an accountability...
Compromised and gone unrecognized,
Is often your excuse.

I'm not here to experience,
That kind of repeated abuse.
You believe I should be accustomed to?
Because you see a mirage of a fool before you?

Only one of us is on that bus!
And guess what?
There is no more 'us', boo!
A fool is a fool.
And you've betrayed that trust.
Guess what?
There is no more 'us', boo!
A fool is a fool.
And only one of us is on that bus!

I am on a different track.
Waiting for a train...
To go in another direction.
On a B4 Real Express.
And I aint looking back!

Only one of us is on that bus!
And guess what?
There is no more 'us', boo!
A fool is a fool.
And you've betrayed that trust.
Guess what?
There is no more 'us', boo!
A fool is a fool.
And only one of us is on that bus!

Apologizing those 'mistakes' made,
To erase an accountability...
Compromised and gone unrecognized,
Is often your excuse.

I'm not here to experience,
That kind of repeated abuse.
You believe I should be accustomed to?
Because you see a mirage of a fool before you?

Guess what?
There is no more 'us', boo!
A fool is a fool.
And only one of us is on that bus!

I am on a different track.
Waiting for a train...
To go in another direction.
On a B4 Real Express.
And I aint looking back!

On a Bed of Romaine

On a bed of Romaine,
Sliced avocado.
Garden tomatoes.
Fresh cucumbers.
Celery and carrots...
Kissed by,
Vadalia Onion Dressing.
And topped with raisins.
Blanketed,
By an awaiting tongue.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
