Someone Else's Garbage

She had bigger gonads than Goliath!
Oh yes she did!
She introduced me to her boyfriend.
And I was living still at the crib!
We were married!
He came by to pick her up for a date!
This was happening...
I couldn't believe!
And neither could they!
I told them to have a good time...
And enjoy the evening!
I know I was going to!
Somebody wanted to see somebody act a fool!
And I wasn't in the mood!
If she allowed herself to show disrespect like that!
I certaintly wasn't going to show her I cared!
I don't pick over left overs...
Or worry about someone else's garbage!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone Had to Try

What are you doing?
And why are you doing this?
What is the reason behind it?

'I've decided you are right.
I'm tired of arguing.
And it has become pointless to fight.
I'll follow your lead.
Since you've said you have clearer sight! '

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'I have no idea.
That would be up to you.
Wherever you take us...
I'm sure you'll follow through.'

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'I guess we'll have to wait to see,
What your leadership proves to be.'

But...
What if I fail?
What will the others then do?

'Are you afraid to lead?
Is that the excuse that you choose? '

Uh...
Uh,
I've grown accustomed,
To critiquing your moves.
I'll be alone in leading.
There will be no one but me,
To make decisions of what I do.
The others will not like me.
And mistakes I might make.
What if I do make a few of them...
And excuses then I can't fake.

'I see!
But it was okay with you...
To see me suffer and bleed.
I am not accustomed to pain at all.
And I am not afraid to lead.'

Then...
Why don't you continue doing what you do.
And I'll stay where I am.
Since that will be easier for me,
To keep the others confused.

'No...
You go ahead.
I want to see how you handle the abuse.
Eventually you'll get use to it.
And the sacrificing too! '

But I am no leader.

'Neither am I.
But someone had to make forward moves.
Someone had to try.
Someone had to rely on faith.
Even though alone they may have cried.'

Wow.
I didn't think of that.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Someone Has to Address Their Needs

Find fault with me.
I have been in preparation...
For dissections and critique.
When I began testing the waters,
I chose to jump in...
Learning 'then' to sink,
Or swim.
With those of shallow minds.
Or with those whose minds were 'deep'.

I did not boast to float along like some.
My intentions were based upon content.
Flash splashes made to say I can make a wave,
Or two.
Was okay at first...
But I have more than just that to do!

I have been in practice for years!

Find fault with me.
I have been in preparation...
For dissections and critique.
If I have to say in poetic verse...
How I hunger for true peace on Earth!
I will be controversial,
With comments some will bleep.

And use I do choice cuss words too.
If I feel a need to shake things loose!

Or I may select a way to probe into minds...
With an eeriness that creeps!
That I love to do,
For those of inflated etiquette standards pursued.
You know the ones?
Politically correct!
And breaking their necks to hide their flaws.
Why I love to watch their jaws drop?
Why not?

Those horses they ride high upon...
Need rest!
Someone has to address their needs.

But I would rather convey,
A way to promote...
An understanding that is consciously invoked.
However,
If that doesn't work?
You can rely on me to provoke with glee.
With a stroke of bitterness...
Yet mixed with lots of love to leave.
Although,
Not necessarily that easily found near the surface.
Give me some credit for my attempts,
To provide hints of contempt...
With a dose of mystery!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

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
