Red Grape

You're like a piece of sugar on the vine,
That's been resisted.
And sitting lusciously delicious,
Waiting to get plucked...
When time comes for the picking.

You're like a piece of sugar on the vine,
That's been resisted.
And sitting lusciously delicious,
Waiting to get plucked...
When time comes for the picking.
By someone patient,
Who sits wishing for you to lick.

You're like sugar on the vine,
Not ripe to lick.
You may be a nine in someone's mind.
But not quite ready to snip and pick.
Or slowly drip from someone's lips.

Red grape...
You're not quite ready to squeeze between teeth.
Red grape...
Your sweetness teases tongues among some.
And,
Red grape...
You look so ripe,
For an easy pick to lick!

You're like a piece of sugar on the vine,
That's been resisted.
And sitting lusciously delicious,
Waiting to get plucked...
When time comes for the picking.
But,
Red grape...
You're not quite ready to squeeze between teeth.
And,
Red grape...
You look so ripe,
For an easy pick to lick!

Redevelopment

Thinking of all aspects of discipline.
And the benefits of comprehension...
Once the affects of listening begins.

The association of respect,
As it is witnessed...
To be connected to one's happiness.

And the satisfaction one gets,
Upon learning sacrifice and patience...
Is a successful process in redevelopment.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Redevelopment Zones

They have turned certain regions,
Into redevelopment zones!
And that's the only 'interests' they have!
To destroy and rebuild...
To fill their pockets.
Creating industries to produce inferior products,
And call this achieving success and advancement!

And whenever visiting these transformed sites...
We are quick to notice where to obtain a soft drink,
And a good hamburger!
'Hold the pickle and the lettuce! '
This is the peace and democracy
They eliminate cultures to spread!
'With mayo and cheese, please! '
These are the reasons they must uphold,
And enforce their will...
Upon those with savage graces!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Redressed

They did not like what I had to say,
Or the manner I chose to say it!
That was clear.
So...
I altered my position!
Redressed my appearance.
Returned and addressed the issue!
Once more.
With the same thing said.
However...
This time louder!
With a dash of flash!
Hoping that would make what I had to say
Heard without doubts incurred!
They were obviously not understanding,
Who they were talking to!
And I like to be understood!
Since I wasn't like the others...
From my old neighborhood!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
