Substance

It's okay if some have none.
Or know what it means to have it.
Some live their entire lives,
Having no clue what it means.
While others believe it is a collection of things.
That sit around waiting to be polished or dusted...
Until the importance of that act,
Bores!

That which has substance also has quality.
Even if ignored,
It will maintain its intent and integrity of content.
Its purpose has been defined.
And there is a reliability that is consistent.
And it is not surprising at all,
That many people have never come in contact with it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11598.     

Substance Fades

It is done quite simply!

To reduce an influence,
And significance...
Advocate the importance,
Of ignorance.

And market this as the latest fad.
With a witnessing of this,
As a rage no one can resist!

That's how influence,
And a significance that benefits...
Begins to slowly diminish in effectiveness.
With a substance that ends as an aging of it,
Fading away...
To become replaced by mediocrity.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11599.     

Sub-Standard Is The Giving Of My Love

Sub-standard to you is the giving of my love.
Do you remember when it see-sawed,
Between excellent and moderate?
Before below sub-par it went.

And your nagging sent me away quite a bit.
For days at a time!
And I returned looking and feeling exuberant.
With no explanation how my joyous time was spent.

Sub-standard to you is the giving of my love.
And I agree the taste of it has been irregular.
With a flavor leftover,
Even the cat turns away.

Sour it is and sits in decay.
Yet when I gave it you thought it to be mixed,
With foolish gift giving and childish nonsense.
Close I came to dipping your chocolate mints in cement.

And today you demand why I express not interest?
I get a better response when I shake an empty paper bag,
While sitting alone on a park bench.
Surrounded by squirrels giving me at least 'some' attention.
And all I have to do is to pretend I am there to give.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11600.     

Subtle and Expected To Be Effective

Subtle and expected to be effective,
Are those racist implications.
To those attempting to integrate,
A blending of ideals.
For the purpose of expressing humanity,
At its best.

And that's great!
For those who sit with patience to wait,
For someone else to allow them...
An opportunity to appreciate,
Themselves!
Without making demands for this in protest.

'We shall overcome.
We shall overcome,
Someday.'

~What are we seeking? ~

'Identity! '

~And when are we seeking it? ~

'Uh...um, er...uh...
Now? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
