Rodomontadinous

A toast to the boasting rant.
Bluster dusting those in whispered chants.
Scatting with street corner bravado...
Being rodomontadinous.
And caring less that it shows.
Hosting ego with a glide that one prides.
As if awarded a grand prize,
For such flagrant obnoxiousness loved.
A performance that seems to fit like a glove.
And observers stare with pen and pad.
Aware that fresh air should be noted,
Before it disappears from their disguises.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Role Play Dreams

We've been fogged by ambiguity.
And role play dreams.

It,
Had been never my wish...
To leave you.
Maybe to lead and guide.
As if to mentor.
It,
Was something done,
We both needed.
That's what I,
In my selfishness believed.

Perhaps it was me,
Who sought compassion.
On a schedule.
And you...
Sought that too!
Too much.
As if to greed.

You were someone I could easily love.
Endlessly.
And maybe you felt squeezed.
Or sought you thought to please...
A constant feeding of my needs.
And fresh air was not there enough...
For you to freely breathe.

Perhaps it was me,
Who sought compassion.
On a schedule.
And you...
Sought that too!
Too much.
As if to greed.
But you received little of that from me.
And too late it is for me to see.

We've been fogged by ambiguity.
And role play dreams.

It,
Had been never my wish...
To leave you.
Maybe to lead and guide.
As if to mentor.
It,
Was something done,
We both needed.
That's what I,
In my selfishness believed.

And it that could have been,
Has diminished.
With me,
Selfishly...
Thinking of myself as the center,
Ending your dreams with me...
Foolishly finishing to end it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Role Tape Please

There was a time in my life,
I would dare not offend anyone.
Although there were those,
Who seemed to have been addicted to it.

Role tape please!
Thank you.

Today...
Scenes have changed.
A seriousness took place in my life.
And I felt I had to over emphasize...
An offending done at my expense,
Was downsized not to exist.
I don't like it one bit!

And yet my return of it...
Is swift with an purpose connected,
As directed.

There was a time in my life,
I would dare not offend anyone.
But these days...
An asking for it,
Gets a quick delivery!

And...
Cut.

I will do my own editing from now on.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Roles They Play To Rehearse

It is easy for anyone,
Not sitting in a hot seat...
To accuse someone for not doing something,
Believed that should be done overnight.
Or someone else could do it better immediately.

Especially if that one has received accolades,
To assume qualifies them with beliefs...
That certain roles they play to rehearse,
And re-enact to fantasize...
Turns their delusions into realities.

'Be careful on the scene.
They are actually using live ammo.
Nothing used are 'props'.
If you should get shot,
You will drop...for real! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
