  11597.     

Starry Eyed

If it wasn't for hindsight,
Some folks wouldn't have any vision at all.
These are the people that have to be convinced...
That taking a step forward,
Actually means moving ahead!

Prosperity with peace slogans don't work anymore!
And yet those running for office to get votes...
Will squeeze the juice from these tired expressions.
In the hopes that those still starry eyed and delusioned,
Will believe anything!
And.
They.
Do!

Even if told the hand felt in their pockets...
Belongs to grandma.
And she comes to 'stir' up their 'packages',
With a stimulating twenty dollar bill!
Prolonging their existence for the next ten years.
And 'this' will be rumored as fact.
Argued in heated debates.

Although there is an actual lifting of lint,
From those empty pockets of many...
Angered with balled fists!
Those benumbed can be heard singing along,
With animated advertisements.
And proud to have anything taken,
To be donated to any 'cause'...
That refreshes memories of their fantasies.

Caring less they are being screwed.
And feeling benevolent...
Like Santa Claus.
While they enrich themselves,
Into a poverty.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stars Of Hunger Documentaries

Even emerging from the darkest of shadows,
Voices making demands are heard.
The accumulation of nonsense,
Has given those usually unseen...
Encouragement to speak.
With a highlighting of their unknown needs.

Those who would normally ignore,
Their neighbors next door...
Come to make unexpected visits.
To sit and chat to barter in exchange,
Complaints about how their lives have changed.

And those who have remained,
In the open and destitute...
Seem to be given less empathy,
As their numbers increase.
Knowing the moans heard...
Come from those who are newly arriving,
Upon the scene.
Making their decades of living in poverty,
Less of a concern.

And many of them had become stars,
Of hunger documentaries.
At least getting an opportunity to eat,
While being filmed.
Who would have ever thought that their plight,
Would become less lucrative as an image.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11599.     

Start A New Trend

Why belabor with complaints,
If there has been a spilling of juice.
Get on your knees and lick it up.
Reduce yourself to self abuse!
Join the club.
Blaming your actions on someone else,
Is such a passing fad.
Be fashionable.
Start a new trend.
Being accountable...
Just might become the 'thing' that's IN.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Start To Move

You wont get them,
With just a wish.
If something's wanted,
You have to get...
Up on your feet.

Then start to move.

With dreams intact,
You have got to prove...
You really want them.
You really do.
If those dreams are wanted,
To come true!

You wont get them,
With just a wish.
If something's wanted,
You have to get...
Up on your feet.
Then start to move.
With dreams intact,
You have got to prove...
You really want them.
You really do.
If those dreams are wanted,
To come true!

If those dreams are wanted,
You have got to move.
If those dreams are wanted,
You have got to prove...
To yourself,
AND nobody else...
You are deserving,
But...
First start to move your feet.
If you are deserving.
Move your feet,
If you are deserving.

If those dreams are wanted,
You have got to prove...
To yourself,
AND nobody else...
You are deserving,
But...
First start to move your feet.
If you are deserving.
Move your feet,
If you are deserving.

Start to move.
If you are deserving.
Get up on your feet.
If you are deserving.
Start to move!
If you are deserving.
Get up on your feet.
If you are deserving.
Start to move.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
