Portrayed As A Maverick

Remember the days when being portrayed,
As a maverick...
Had offended those 'normal',
Who then considered themselves conformists.

And today there are more than ever before,
Joining the ranks of those clearly insane.
Daring to proclaim they are entitled...
To follow and uphold a way of life that is crazed!

And those 'abnormal' with dysfunctions known,
Have proven what they value with standards attached...
Are living with a peace of mind,
And choosing to remain detached...
From those who have lost their minds to never get back!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Portrayed As a Togetherness Wished

So divided and un-united as a people they are.
And so without an identity.
Whatever purpose they had,
Has been deluted into a non-meaning.

At one time the response was high.
With an energy few could deny.
But today some just rather walk away.
Than to receive the many labels dispensed...
From those who claim involvement,
In this kind of delusional nonsense.
Portrayed as a togetherness wished.
But their minds are not uplifted...
From the valleys they travel and kept revisited!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Portraying Themselves As a Class of Masters

These matters would not exist...
If not discussed,
With such digusted persistence.

To insist that what is not real for some...
Does not undo what has been done,
Or mean others are not dealing with it...
For centuries to overcome.

Some would say homelessness and racism,
Aren't realities lived surrounding them.
And yet there are millions living like this,
In a country they all live in!

And these situations are not just observed,
From tourists eyes...
But also lived by countless others,
Who can not hide as they try to survive.

Poverty and joblessness...
Aren't fantasized conditions,
Just 'minorities' live with!
They happen to dwell in urban cities...
While a 'majority' come into work,
And leave these scenes strapped with taxes...
Taking resources and quick they flee!

Those hustling with fat paychecks,
Want to believe...
They are not restricted,
From an abundance of opportunities!

And as long as they reflect,
A standard of life they respect...
Their visions are not limited,
With constant reminders they are rejected...
By someone else's perspective!

As they live in a 'world'
With images of themselves everywhere displayed.
Providing comforts for those of similar faces...
Portraying themselves as a class of masters.
And shepherding others,
To their accepted places!
As they announce their actions...
Benefits their interests,
To incite destruction and immoral conflicts.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Portraying Themselves As Friends

I don't care who told it...
When it was told to who and why.
When a lie leaves someone's lips,
And they are quick to try to cover it...
With additional nonsense that makes less sense,
I feel offended, disrespected...
And I will not get over it!

I do not exist for that kind of crap to persist,
In my life.
Not mine.
Folks like that,
I could care less who they are.
They will not get other opportunities,
To do what they do to others to me!

I am not that kind of forgiver.
When I give of myself,
I deliver.
And there is nothing below the surface that I hide.
But I will bury quick...
An association I discover has been based upon lies!
Too much of that is observed.
And cowards portraying themselves as friends...
Are the first to think its a joke,
To do you in!
And believe your reaction to them is not deserved!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
