Suddenly Images Change

Too many now bending under heat,
Like drying crops.
Without a drop...
Of reviving fresh water.

Others would rather ignore their pleas,
And let them rot.
Like the weeding,
Of their wicked disorder!

Suddenly images change.
Those now in pain,
Are the ones...
Who chose to inflict it.

Suddenly they all seem insane.
Those who disdained,
Are now the ones...
Mentally conflicted.

Too many now bending under heat,
Like drying crops.
Without a drop...
Of reviving fresh water.

Others would rather ignore their pleas,
And let them rot.
Like the weeding,
Of their wicked disorder!

Suddenly images change.
Those now in pain,
Are the ones...
Who chose to inflict it.

Suddenly they all seem insane.
Those who disdained,
Are now the ones...
Mentally conflicted.

Suddenly images change.
Like drying crops.
Without a drop...
Of reviving fresh water.

Suddenly they all seem insane.
Those who disdained...
Are now the ones,
Out-of-order.

Suddenly images change.
Like rotting crops.
Suddenly they all seem insane.
Their tears now drop.

Suddenly images change.
Like rotting crops.
Suddenly they all seem insane.
Their tears now drop.

Too many now bending under heat,
Like drying crops.
Without a drop...
Of reviving fresh water.

Suddenly images change.
Those now in pain,
Are the ones...
Who chose to inflict it.

Suddenly images change.

Suddenly they all seem insane.

Suddenly images change.

Suddenly they all seem insane.

Suddenly images change.
Those now in pain,
Are the ones...
Who chose to inflict it.
Now the wicked are conflicted.

Suddenly With Intention

Difficult they had been to get,
Were those lessons now treasured...
To remember and never forget.

And it seems the teaching of those lessons taught,
Always came from those first opposed.
With a belief a stubbornness shown to expose,
Would validate to keep a limited mind forever closed.

And then one day the dawn, the dew and the Sun,
Rising on the horizon becomes clearer to notice...
As if 'something' suddenly with intention connects.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Suffering From Head Wounds

Those told what to do most of their lives,
What to think, how to think...
What not to believe or listen to.
And who is stupid,
Because of their physical appearances...
Are those who are most traumatized,
By the sign of these rapidly changing times.

Not all...
But most people have been conditioned to believe,
That the unchanged color of a house...
Also determines what goes on inside.
No matter how many renovations have taken place.
Or evolving maturities of the people living in it.
All people will do is to talk about what they 'knew'.
Or what they've been told.

And...
Most of the time what is known,
Had been heard from one's now grown children...
Or a pet dog or cat,
Programmed to be reliable.
But not from the horse's mouth!
People rather beat their horses to death,
Repeatedly.

Those told most of their lives,
What to think, how to think...
What not to believe or listen to.
And who is stupid,
Because of their physical appearances...
Are those who are most traumatized,
By the sign of the times.

Without being medicated,
Few people are sure if and when they should...
Take a left or right turn,
Why and for what purpose.
And if they should or should not ignore,
Signs that warn them to yield and pay attention...
With caution!

People have been taught to believe and do as they please,
Because...
Well,
They are entitled to do so for the rest of their lives.

'Medic...
There's another one over here suffering from head wounds.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Suffering From The Exhaustion

Suffering from the exhaustion,
That has eliminated the feeding...
Of their own gluttonous greed,
Is not the fault of those...
Who have been hired to service,
Their needing to feast.
Or those who came to warn,
Of leaner days ahead.

Suffering from the exhaustion,
That has eliminated the feeding...
Of their own gluttonous greed,
Has been self inflicted.
With a sweetened ignorance,
All fed upon to do to choose...
A doing exactly what they pleased.
No matter who was stepped on or over.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
