Setting A Few Records Straight

There is nothing like confronting,
An adversary who initiates conflicts...
But somehow has forgotten,
The ones that attempted...
To ruin you and your reputation.

With character assassination...
And malicious gossip,
Propped up on lips nonstop!
The only ones knowing,
What this might be like...
Are those not living their lives,
Appeasing others...
Sitting on a fence.
And living in a noncommitment status!

With hand extended to welcome you,
The one with an absence of memory...
Invites you as someone new,
To a neighborhood...
You had long lived before,
Being ushered away years ago.
But those into 'looks' aren't consumed with history.

No...
There is nothing like it!
Nor is there anything quite like,
Those decisions one chooses to ignore or make!
Especially,
When confronted with setting a few records straight!

'You look as 'if' you have something on your mind.
What could someone like you...
Possibly have on your mind?
Besides me?
And...
I hope you don't think I am being too forward? '

~Not at all!
You're making this more easier than I initially thought.~

'You are such the tease! '

~You have no idea how close I am to stopping.
And just let you have what I'd like to deliver.
But...
With you,
I am going to take my time!
I hope you're into sports? ~

'Me?
I love them! '

~I'm learning to become fond of them myself.
I enjoy skydiving and mountain climbing.
Which one of those would you like to learn? ~

Setting a Precedence

I am not hardly the one,
To play ignorant for fun.
Or become upset,
Over a pettiness done.

Although in some environments,
These acts are witnessed...
As if setting a precedence.
By those in and seeking predicaments!

Those who are the ones conditioned,
To be part of the creation of them!
Those who argue and fight each other...
With an unending quest for a unity to begin.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Setting For the Right Conditions

Sometimes the right one comes too late.
And we are left to appreciate,
The one who offers 'things' and not love.

And no love with 'things' is just what that is!
An existence.
With fading wishes.

And even though,
Sometimes the right one comes too late.
For some.
Those who have 'exhausted'
Living their lives for another one.
Sometimes,
For them the right one does comes too late.

But let whoever comes to arrive at my doorstep...
With my desires and needs met!
And I am still panting like a tiger caged!
In these times when nothing is perfect.
I am there.
To be unleashed

And they are welcomed to come right on in.
To be freed of expectations.

I am always available for the right cause,
And ready to arrange the setting...
For those conditions understood,
To be of mutual benefit.
Set in a setting for the right conditions met.
And on time!
Whenever it is.
I stay prepared and ready.

And...
If someone is in a situation,
Determined to be in it.
Because it is a 'situation'.
Those are their unsatisfying affairs.
I ain't mad at 'em!

Setting Stages

There is only one explanation,
That reveals the setting stages of today's insanity.

Vanity, greed and the feeding fed of feelings,
To achieve superiority.
And a right to defend what one pleases,
To describe as an entitlement.

There is no escaping from minds intensed,
With an intent to be seen better than others.
No matter who suffers unjust and undeserving atrocities.
And deluded with beliefs humanity is dispensable,
To anyone capable of possessing 'bling'.
As if obsessed to play the role of God.

There is only one explanation,
That reveals the setting stages of today's insanity.

Vanity, greed and the feeding fed of feelings,
To achieve superiority.
And a right to defend what one pleases,
To describe as an entitlement.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
