System Of Deceit And Secrecy

So above the law are thieves.
They've devised their own system,
Of deceit and secrecy.

And denounce they do,
Those who speak truth.
With a certainty to ruin their lives.

And crooks have others believe...
They should feel threatened,
By 'these' enemies out to destroy...
Their comforts and accustomed ease.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tables Turn And Times Change

For decades.
'D' With 'cades'...
Decades!
The homeless and those hungry,
Have survived outside...
Under carboard, subways
And bus and train stations.
Ignored completely...
By those giving them,
Cornered looks from eyes...
With raised noses.

As those of 'means'...
Treated the people in these scenes,
As if to be invisible.
With a wish,
By those 'of means'...
Not to see 'those' people,
In these scenes.

'Why can't they find jobs?
It is deplorable to see this...
Acceptable laziness.'

But,
The tables turn and times change.
'Those' people are now joined by 'them'.
And 'they' together are finding...
How values swiftly shift,
From mall shopping...
To wishing someone hurries,
From a publicly used restroom!

And newspaper to rub...
Becomes for both of them,
And many with money wearing thin...
A point of focus.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tabloid Moments

An escaping from those tabloid moments,
Seems to be an incredible impossibility.
Plastered on everything that is moving,
Are advertisements reminding...
What's on TV, what to eat, how to dress
And what to read.

Intimate details of celebrities,
Has made the paparazzi a new industry.
And the squeezing of produce in a grocery store,
One is reminded which 'star' is on what diet.
Is it celery and grapefruit?
And what are avocados used for?

An escaping from those tabloid moments,
Seems to be an incredible impossibility.
Plastered on everything that is moving,
Are advertisements reminding...
What's on TV, what to eat, how to dress
And what to read.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tacky Lacking Couth

Why are you making this song so sad?
It is a happy tune...
But you're making me mad.

Why are you making this song so sad?
It is a happy tune...
But you're making me mad.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Crude and hard.
Exposing fangs like a viper.
And breathing like you're crazy.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Big and bad...
And tacky lacking couth.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Crude and hard.
Exposing fangs like a viper.
And breathing like you're crazy.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Big and bad...
And tacky lacking couth.

Why are you making this song so sad?
It is a happy tune...
But you're making me mad.

Why are you making this song so sad?
It is a happy tune...
But you're making me mad.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Crude and hard.
Exposing fangs like a viper.
And breathing like you're crazy.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Big and bad...
And tacky lacking couth.

Big and bad...
And tacky lacking couth.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Crude and hard.
Exposing fangs like a viper.
And breathing like you're crazy.

Don't know why you wanna be,
Big and bad...
And tacky lacking couth.
