Should We Still Search For Toto?

'Sir...
We have not yet located the Yellow Brick Road,
Nor the Emerald City!
Although we have studied plans,
For a re-creation!
There is still a chance Dorothy can be found!
It is rumored by the villagers of Munchkinland,
A ruby studded pump carried by a man
Dressed in a lion's suit
Was seen
Having lunch with the wicked witch,
In a diner called West of Kansas!
We have them currently under surveillance...
And monitored for any inappropriate activity!
Mister President...
We have the Tin Man in custody,
And Auntie Em is under sedation!
Our troops are exhausted...
Although everyone has agreed,
This mission must continue!
Whether or not the approaching tornado lands.
Should we still search for Toto?
We do have a replacement in training!
Now that our mission in Oz is nearing completion,
It is advisable to steer the course...
Since victory 'is' inevitable!
However...
We can not reveal a precise date to announce,
For any withdrawals to begin from this addiction
Commenced!
And sir...
We can always change 'victory' to imply,
A probable cause for success?
Terminology and semantics,
Has never been used as a weapon
By our adversaries!
And polls?
As long as we keep it clear...
We refer to the North,
And South poles when regarding our strategy!
There should be no misunderstanding left,
To clarify our purpose AND intent! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Shouldn't One Be Conscious of Losing Fat

Shouldn't one be conscious of losing fat?
Especially if one manages one's diet.
And is aware of that fact!

And yet one who manages another,
Where others are employed.
Has the audacity to say...
They had no idea,
How things turned out...
In the way they have.
But can account for a time,
Of having known some excess!

But yet can pocket and create excuses,
For the disappearance of missing funds!

Which one would you hold more accountable?
And why do all their relatives,
Manage to have Summer homes in Florida?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Shouldn't We Be More Republic?

Why is the fight...
For democracy
A vision to be enforced by republicans,
Who have long divorced themselves
From the needs of common people?

They are not democrats at all!
But yet they do not hesitate or stall...
To label them librals!
This they will not confess...
Even complex them in distress!

Shouldn't we all be 'republicans'?
Fighting these endless battles?
Shouldn't we all be 'republicates'
With these issues to harnest and saddle?

'I pledge alligence to the...
...and to the 'republic' for which it stands,
One nation under God,
Seems to have slipped from sliding hands! '

There is something very republic about it...
That markets a democracy it misunderstands!

Democratic they may be...
For poster displays plastered in inner cities!
But 'republicans' true they say they are...
And democracy is pursued!
But none is used by far!

For purpose and content...
Their views aren't worth the trash in cans!
If it is true they move as republicans...
Why is democracy costing lives,
By actions 'republicans' command?

'Repeat that pledge again!
This time in its entirety.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Show And Tell

Aren't you concern at all,
About what your children carry...
In their backpacks,
When they go off to school?

'Not at all.
Our children have been taught to think,
Independently.'

I've noticed your son is dressed in camouflaged fatigues.
And has hidden his face behind war paint.
What about the rifle he carries?
Is that real?
And those straps filled with ammunition.
Don't you think you should...
Maybe, say something?
Or at least ask him a 'few' questions?

'This was discussed last night.
He told us his class has a 'Show and Tell' session.
And he is going to be the first,
To show and tell them a few things...
He's been wanting to get off his chest.'

I don't want to be one of those 'nosey neighbors'...
But,
I think you should be more pro-active.
More involved with your children.

'Oh we are.
I will be too busy to attend his 'show and tell' event.
However...
I asked my son to get one of his friends to videotape it.
And to my surprise...
When I saw him rehearsing last night,
All of us admitted we had goosebumps.
He was absolutely thrilling.'

Excuse me.
I need to make an urgent call.

'Sure. Sure.
Would you like another cup of coffee?
I can make a fresh pot if you like? '

No.
I need to do this as quickly as possible.
Oh...
What grade is your son in?

'The 5th!
Why? '

I'll be right back.

'If you don't mind,
Bring us both some donuts.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
