Reaching The Pinnacle

Greatness!
And reaching the pinnacle,
Of fame and success...
Obtained carefully and taken by steps.
Can leave one unsuspecting...
Breathless.
And insecure at such a lofty height.

But that greatness achieved,
Is not a timeless annointment...
To be left to go unchecked.
Without a truth one should face,
With all that there is centered upon it...
To maintain as greatness is accomplished.
Can never be disrespected or it eventually fades.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Reactionaries

Ultraconservative reactionaries...
Politically correct with intentions set,
Can be often compared...
To children who do not listen.
Wishing to have their demands,
And requests met...
For whatever reason,
To appease a selfishness.
Just to get their way.
No matter how or who ultimately pays.

'It would be wonderful,
To get back to a basicness.'

Oh,
I do agree.
But the expensiveness of it,
Is now out of reach.
Even beggars on the streets,
Are complaining about the cost of keeping up...
With appearances.
Yesterday what they did was lucrative!
Today?
Those with degrees in engineering,
Are seeking them to be trained.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Reactions Difficult To Detach

Unknowledgeable about one's own history...
And yet publicly denouncing,
A history documented by another...
May 'be' one's druthers to do.

However...
If one has committed,
To speak with untruths as is done...
It should behoove others advocating their trust,
By a giving of that to one who speaks up...
To have that someone representing their interests,
To make their speeches with facts attached.
And not spill ignorance from their guts!
With embarrassing reactions difficult to detach.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Read A Book Just Don'T Face It

Faked profiles and deceptive connections...
Found and romanced,
To seduce fantasies...
With a kept belief of delusions,
Is not a solution the internet can fix.
When people become hooked on false appearances...
Emotions in the mix of this become dangerous,
For those addicted and can not snap out of it.

Remember when the telephone rang?
And someone ran to answer it?
Well...
Those days long gone and enhanced by convenience,
Upgraded technology continues to replace...
Has also eliminated the necessity,
Of meeting people face to face.
Has created the permanence of sickened mentalities.

Read a book just don't face it.
Open it to digest the contents,
To deliberately comprehend.
Before announcing a commitment,
That hasn't started to weep its end.

Read a book just don't face it.
And study it from cover to back.
Don't rely on texted messages...
Anyone can erase,
With the replacement of distorted facts.

Read a book.
Just don't place a face on it.
To befriend someone unknown to discover,
You've been duped foolishly and emotionally tricked.

Read a book.
Just don't face it.
If no interest is there,
Leave it to replace.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
