  11997.     

That Will or Can Replicate the Doing

This may be traumatic.
But those possessing intelligence,
Are not of your creation.
No scholars you determine...
And selected to roam the halls of ivy.
May be ill equipped,
To handle common sense.

Leather bound books,
May encase what you feel is brilliant
Based upon what you declare...
Reflects an exclusive experience.
To be then induced and reproduced.
To recreate your version...
Of majestic mountains,
And the air we breathe allowed by trees.

This may be traumatic.
But those possessing intelligence,
Are not of your creation.
Nor is 'that' which has made this possible.

And there is nothing you can research and document...
That will or can replicate the doing.
The only choices you can make...
Is to steal and pretend,
You are the beginning of it all.
But your presence when that ends...
Does not 'end' the presence of what is witnessed.

This may be traumatic.
But you...
Having nothing to do with it.
You just represent the effects.
That's all!
Unless you're convinced...
Your head can damage or break a brick wall?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

That Word That Smells

I've found a reason not to rhyme.
Or open a door to flowing prose.
I suppose I am not feeling poetic today.
Nor especially free of speech.
Although there is a discipline to write.
Sometimes my mind turns off like a light.

And even though I said,
I've found a reason not to rhyme...
Something 'automatic' within me resists.
Something inside of me refuses to respond,
To my temptations that exist to just say...
It!
You know.
That word that smells when one feels like hell!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

That Works In Your Favor

Just because you've done something,
For a very long time...
Does not mean you have an acquired skill.
Or expertise.
However...
At least you can adapt to routine.
And you are loyal to redundancy.
That deserves a highlight.

Now...
Whether or not this should be considered creative,
Depends upon your ambitions.
And getting out of bed to come here...
Expresses a willingness to embrace change.
But the watching of television with consistency...
I would not regard that as a talent.

I recommend you redo this resumι.
Remove your picture with the ascot.
I understand the presentation.
Add something technical like:
'Ability to monitor for long periods of time.'
Pehaps then,
My staff and I could 'locate' a security position for you.
Plus you have the presence of a watchdog.
Dark, big and muscular!
'That' works in your favor!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

That Would Be Devastating

How is he preparing for the next debate?

'That's hard for us to determine,
As of this date.'

Why?

'Well...
He's great during our practice sessions.
To make sure the public is informed.
But somehow he is still not convinced,
That eliminating the facts to use against his opponent...
Is not the way to win.'

What do you think is behind his strategy?

'We have no clue.
But hopefully he will realize...
The people have become fantasized,
By the image his opponent presents.
And using the facts as truth to prove,
To the people they have been duped...
Is what he has to do! '

I wonder if it would be to his benefit,
If he chose to expose to the people...
He was fluent in the speaking of Chinese?
And if he is not re-elected...
The Chinese will demand immediate payment,
Of those trillions of dollars...
They have invested in keeping us all delusioned.

'We have already suggested that.
But during the last conference we had with Big Bird,
A different tactic is guaranteed to awaken all the people.
You see...
The opponent has no idea,
How powerful Sesame Street really is.'

You don't think he is prepared to use Big Bird's recommendations,
As his secret weapon?

'Not only do I think he is going to use Big Bird.
But the entire cast of Sesame Street.'

That would be devastating for any opponent,
If he decided to do so.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
