Someone Needs to Draw For Them a Much Clearer Picture

So closed have been my eyes.
So closed and distracted.
From those acts,
That now I can say...
Left unattended,
My values.

Standards I expected to be maintained...
Use to have identifiable names!
Today,
I'd be hard pressed...
Trying to find anyone addressing them.

And that is my fault.
I can't recall the last time,
I reminded anyone...
To keep them encouraged,
Flourished and well nourshed.

I kept hot flashes of fast cash in my mind!
And for too long.
'That'...
I can admit was wrong!
But I can not be the only one,
That has been that stupid?

And I observe more destitution on the streets!

Why can't these people get on their feet,
Get a job and go home! ?
Or establish good credit,
Like the others snuggled in,
Their suburban homes.
Slicing to eat,
Another piece of that Apple pie.

So closed have been my eyes.
So closed and distracted.
From those acts,
That now I can say...
Left unattended,
My values.

'Are those inner city people still whining?
Someone needs to draw for them a much clearer picture.
Perhaps if they see how it is done...
They will get themselves together! '

~Will that be all, Master Lawrence? ~

'Yes.
Make several copies.
Hand a few to that bag lady!
Tell her to dispense with them amongst the crowd.
Maybe that will give them some incentive,
To move away from my doorstep.
And become viable citizens of this great land! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone Needs to Inform Them

Personally...
I find it quite awkward,
To have them standing on the sidelines
Discussing the decline of their quality of life!
And now they come into the urban areas,
Looking for artists to disguise their vacancies.
This is what they do...
'To connect'.

I didn't mind it at all when the call was specifically,
To throw some paint on the empty buildings!
But now they want their faces painted to disguise their tears?
And all of this could have been avoided,
If they did not masquerade as they climbed up the ladder...
To shout out directions to those below them.
With the utmost disrespect.

Now they are trying to pretend they were on the look out.
And want to share in artistic profits,
By declaring finder's fees?
They are absolutely gifted in manipulation.
But this time they will have to suffer the consequences,
Of their actions.

And someone needs to inform them...
That the wearing of clown suits in the urban neighborhoods,
Is not a wise decision.

They have been living in isolation so long...
They actually believe some folks will accept them,
As performers from a circus coming to town?
This is not the time to take themselves so seriously!

And those they wish to entertain now...
With this 'sign' of brotherhood,
Are probably not going to find them amusing at all!
Especially when everyone knows,
These same antics were used to speed the decline!
They were dressed like fools.
And that's the way they were treated!

However...
Personally,
I find it quite awkward...
That they would try to ruin my reputation.
To have me appear to be stupid.
And they go to great lengths,
To appear as bigger fools!
Are they in competition to determine,
'Who' is the most ignorant?
I hope not.
Because they have won that,
With no objection expressed.

Someone Still Hanging Around The Playground

Having things the way we wish they should be,
With a convincing of others they would be better off...
If they followed our lead,
Is a fantasized wish probably found on a priority list...
Of those hoping to blame their held immature insecurities,
On someone still hanging around the playground.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone They Distrust

Many will get immediately upset and disgusted,
By someone they distrust who tells them the truth.
To then defend without question or comprehending why,
A lie told by a 'friend' known to exaggerate and embellish...
Everything said not to be believed,
Because of a close relationship shared...
Regardless if honesty has never been there to discuss.
But avoid they will any truth coming up that offends.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
