Shopping

Isn't it odd...
How victorious the Vikings were,
And not one of them
Can be found shopping
On 5th Avenue
In Manhattan!
And there are those
Of Asian, African and Hispanic
Origin...
All over the place!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  10798.     

Shorten That Story

One can and when wished,
Modify that which one has created.
To update with changes made if it is so desired.
However...
Standing in the shadows and prepared to take,
Advantage of any situation that comes their way...
To make claims and false accusations,
Are the naysayers, instigators, betrayers and fakers.
Hoping to replace that which someone else has made,
For the purpose to demean and character assassinate.

And those who have been convinced,
What they have been told to buy makes to them sense...
Await for explanations,
As to why what they have been sold to purchase...
Neither satisfies as the original,
Nor is it close to being mediocre.

'Uh...um.
Excuse me, but...
What you say has been yours all this time,
Has a different presentation.
And the taste of it is less than sublime.
Inferior comes to mind.
Shouldn't it be easy for you to duplicate the taste?
Since the flavor and taste you claimed to have created.'

~Well...
It's like this.
What I really did was to assist.~

'Even 'if' you assisted,
Shouldn't the quality be better than this?
Then who 'is' the true creator? '

~It's a long story.~

'No problem.
Shorten that story.
And tell us...
When did you begin to start,
The telling to spread your big lies? '

~They're not lies.
They are just...~

'Exuberant embellishments?
With a superficial offering to entertain?
Or are your just out of your damn mind? '

~May I have another option, please.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  10799.     

'Should I Do That With or Without Embellishment? '

How many grains of sand,
Are there on every beach on Earth.

'That would be impossible for me to fathom.'

Then why do you believe,
You can get inside my head to figure me out?

Please...
Do not regard me as your research project.

If I were you...and glad I am not...
I would begin to live my own life.

'Should I do that with or without embellishment? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  10800.     

Should I Lift My Eyes

Ride with guilt?
Sit harnessed to remorse?
Take a backseat to happiness,
And choose a more abusing course?
Gamble a peace of mind...
To share grief,
It took years to leave?
Me?
Should I settle for disappointments,
From others who feel...
My 'gifts' they annointed?
And I am not in praise,
To elevated their dazed crazed ways?
OR...
Should I lift my eyes with gratitude?
And thank God my life...
Hasn't been spent infighting with them,
In a dare not to split...
Someone's flapping lips.
Or have found myself by now a stowaway,
Aboard a cruising ship that drifts!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
