The One Who Laid Down All The Pipe

When a mold has been broken,
It is difficult to replace its status.
Since the achitect needed,
To re-create the blueprint...
Has to everyone been told,
Through generations young and old...
Their selective beginnings started,
From hand-me-down myths...
Of ancestors sitting high on thrones.
When in actuality,
The achitect was a janitor named Hank...
Who loved to doodle.
You know...
Hank?
The one who laid down all the pipe.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The One Who Leads

We the people...
Seem to become influenced,
By nonsense competitions.
Especially those that come to leadership.
If any wishes to acknowledge who is winning
Anything pertaining to the quality of one's life lived...
Needs only to be more observant.
And if that does not satisfy...
One needs only to contact those owed.
They will be quick to tell anyone,
Whose debts have yet been paid!
And give names.
They tell who leads,
In the repayment department.
The one who eats and feeds without concern...
Of receiving aggravating telephone calls,
From creditors.
Is the one who leads!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Ones Considered Once On 'Abnormal' Missions

It wasn't that long ago...
When those who regarded themselves,
Normal...
Would campaign openly against,
Those perceived as strange and individual.
Because those who did not accept,
Their restricted visions...
Were made to feel like lepers.
Who had abnormal missions.

Well, well, well...
Here we are in twenty ten.
And the ones with those 'abnormal' missions...
Seem to be more than quite normal to me.
They were the ones watching their diets and exercising.
Meditating and speaking of a higher consciousness.

And those who once lived self righteous lives,
As they passed their judgements...
While making the 'weird' ones singled out to despise.
Seem today the ones totally crazed.
The ones now wishing to get away from those like themselves.
As the ones considered once on 'abnormal' missions...
Wishing to keep their peace and distance.
With the hope those of high moral 'standards'...
Do not find them to taint!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Ones Inside

I have learned...
Anytime when you speak of 'we'
You refer to those much like yourself.
And to those who may have your 'interests'
To protect!

You have taught me...
I am not a part of that group.
Comprehension has been my greatest asset.
I am not the one in your face,
In discussions regarding my well being!

You need not raise a single eyebrow,
When I am around in your presence.
I have known what you share in confidence,
As you and I cross paths...
Does not concern me.
Or the others 'inside' your house,
Providing your entertainment.

I don't need to be convinced.
I have known that all my life!
Now...
The others 'inside' giggling with your guests?
They have not caught on 'yet'!

You may want to address that frown on your face,
To them!
I'm not having it!
Or looking for direction,
To pass or fail inspection.
With or without acceptance or rejection.
However...
I 'will' deliver your message to them,
Again.
And this time,
I want an increase in pay!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
