Little Of That Had Been Exposed

The one they declare great who led them...
Had to be awakened and reminded of it.
And he is given credit for delivering a message,
He read.
With his lines highlighted.
But the entire script,
He had nothing to do with.

He was there to portray the role with believability.
He succeeded.
But his part did not breakdown any walls.
Or pave fresh paths to discoveries.

Those who had viewed this from distances...
Still saw them all as representing imbeciles.
And this new young guy appointed,
They suspect...
As being sent from another planet.
Since he makes attempts to present a credibility...
Where little of that had been exposed or shown,
Ever!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Little Things

It's not the keys to a free Cadillac.
Or an expensive wardrobe presented,
To one stunned to realize...
They have been treated with gifts,
Without a bill to pay...
Demanding a cent to cover the taxes.

It's,
The little things that make...
One's sentiments more appreciated.
It's those little things given,
With a doing that surprises...
Coming to be done from the heart.
Take those little things away,
To disregard them as important.
And what remains to linger on,
Is what someone has failed to do...
Years long gone.
Not to remember...
A cap on a tube of toothpaste removed,
And not replaced...
Started an argument in 1992.

Statistics have proven,
It is the little things people choose...
To use to evaluate their relationships.

The closer people are,
It's always the little things that leave...
More meaning.
The closer people are,
Those little things bring back...
Unforgotten memories.
Little things mean more than not,
Than what one has of value.
Like bonds and stocks to brag about.

It's not the keys to a free Cadillac.
Or an expensive wardrobe presented,
To one stunned to realize...
They have been treated with gifts,
Without a bill to pay...
Demanding a cent to cover the taxes.
It's the little things revisited,
That seem to always bring the tears.

'Baby?
What's the matter?
The Cadillac ran out of gas? '

~No.
I found that dime you only had.
And gave to me to say...
It was your last.
And I laughed.
Until I realized you had passed me the check,
In that restaurant where we washed the dishes.~

'Is that why the State Troopers,
Pulled you over to then call me? '

~They tried to calm me down,
When I told them...
You purposely left the cap,
Off the toothpaste.~

*I hate to break up this bonding time,
On my time you two are wasting.
But, sir...
Do you have any proof at all,
That the both of you are not crazed?
And this...person,
Is related to you.
We pulled her over to the side of the road,
Crying her eyes out and babbling...
About finding a dime to find it's 'now' toothpaste.*

'I'm sorry.
But none of this would have started,
If I had not brought home the Cadillac.
And that car I'm driving,
I've had since 1992.'

*I'll tell you what...
I'm only going to say this,
And hopefully never again to anyone.
The World is suffering from an economic crisis.
And here you two are,
Talking about dimes and caps left off toothpaste.
And...a gift of a Cadillac.
I'll leave you with that.
Have a great day.*

Live And In Color

If an attractiveness,
To leap over a cliff is wished.
There is nothing that is going to stop...
The splattering that occurs,
When the impact of the plop
Spreads after it is dropped!
Prepare yourself with a hose.
Since this job to clean,
Is too big for a mop...
To impose on this scene.
Make sure the event,
Provides brilliant TV coverage...
Over the airwaves sent!
This is a nailbiter begging to be captured.
LIVE and in color!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Live As If You'Re Getting What It Is

Remove the 'maybe'
From the things you need.

Remove the 'maybe'
From dreams you want to see.

Remove the heartache,
From those setbacks.
Keep on trying.
Your wishes with those wants,
Will someday end that teasing.

Remove the 'maybe'
From hope and faith.
Do whatever that hardwork takes.
Remove the sadness from your smile.
And live as if you're getting what it is...
And it's tasty!

Remove the 'maybe'
From the things you need.

Remove the 'maybe'
From dreams you want to see.

Remove the heartache,
From those setbacks.
And live as if you're getting what it is...
And it's tasty!

Spiced the way you like it,
And tasty!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
