Someone Has To Leave Feeling Victorious

Someone has to lose,
In a game of egos played.
Someone has to leave feeling victorious,
To pump up a chest...
And display this to parade,
An intended attention to get.

Someone has to be defeated.
No matter who it is.
Even if the purpose is pointless,
Conflicts are created only to make...
The doing of it to impress an accepted,
Ignorance left displayed for whatever the reason.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone I Am Not

You'd like for me to be for you someone I am not.
You'd like for me to dropp my priorities,
And put your agenda on top.
Stop!

Wasting my time I have never found comforting.
Or deciding my life is less important than yours,
Has never occurred to blur my vision.

Any door of opportunity I see for me that is open,
I am going to walk through it.
And your attempts to block me...
Is a notice from you I do not deserve.

And ignoring you does not take neither courage,
Or nerve.
You're just another observed fool in my way!
Move,
You can not stay here to pluck or shuck...
Not at this door to cross a threshold.

You'd like for me to be for you someone I am not.
You'd like for me to dropp my priorities,
And put your agenda on top.
Stop!

What have you not heard?
Do you wish for me to show you,
I can be insensitive?
Someone I am not.
But I can deliver a believable portrayal,
Whenever someone has that as a need.

You'd like for me to be for you someone I am not.
You'd like for me to dropp my priorities,
And put your agenda on top.
Stop!

I prefer to be left to be someone I am.
Not to be changed into someone I am not!
Although I am quick to defend against,
Misdeeds and their intentions.
With a noticeable determination.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone I Don't Know

A spell within repeating.
Unseated in my grief.
Shadows lift from me.
Unwind I do from needing.

I feel a sadness ending.
I leave behind despair.
Someone says hello.
Someone I don't know.

Then I am touched by love.
It feels as if I knew it.
It was familiar then.
Like it did...
When I hid my heart!

A spell within repeating.
Unseated in my grief.
Shadows lift from me.
Unwind I do from needing.

I feel a sadness ending.
I leave behind despair.
Someone says hello.
Someone I don't know...
But knew!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone Influential

Three piece suited and tied crooks,
Are becoming too comfortable
Wearing flip flops with sox...
And getting breakfast, lunch and dinner too,
With cable nonstop
Behind bars for executive crimes!

They don't mind sweeping cell blocks with mops.
Or chatting around the clock,
About the dirty cops who stopped them,
To pocket hush money for their silence!

These are the days...
Hoodlums are being paid,
And treasures are being stashed...
As the middle class pays up the ass
To conceal these vermin,
Doing 'rehabilitated' time
Behind barbed wire...
Safe and secure in concrete condos!
Undeterred and being nourished.

And when these thieves are released...
They are booked again!
But this time,
They preach on stages in forums
On how they have paid the price,
For sacrificing their freedom...
To thunderous applause and standing ovations!
As chauffeurs await to whisk them away,
To negotiate with agents
Over book deals and movie rights to consider!

And these messages are delivered to our youth!

'Stay in school!
And one day you too...
May meet someone influential! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
