The Courage To Be Honest

All he has done,
Is to remove hypocrisy...
From the decision making process.

And although this is historic,
In the eyes of those self righteous...
He has shown an ability as a leader,
To have the courage to be honest.
And for those hiding behind shadows,
This is incredible news.
It is unbelievable!
Leaving many to say,
He has done this for political reasons! !

Duh!
Let's evaluate his position.

He once had taught law.
He has interpreted the constitution,
As documented by the founders of their society.
Especially the part that says,
Protecting the rights of all people...
Regardless of their religious affliations.
That part.
That part that states...
Everyone should be treated equal.

And for the people observing this...
He has exposed his willingness,
To represent ALL people...
AND not to defy God's wishes.
For those thumping upon their Bibles.
With a cutting to paste their re-writes.

However...
He has offended those who would rather live lives,
Pretentiously.
Offending the ones who advocate for family values,
AND standards...
But whose leaders of their moralistic foundations,
Are being investigated for crimes of all kinds.
You name them!
They are there in full representation.

And THEY...
Regardless of their religious affliliations,
Or political indoctrinations...
Have used their own beliefs,
To prove they are out of their minds.

Although insist their own ignorance should be followed.
No matter what the evidence is...
That has proven them to be selectively crazed.
And these days...
Quite blatant about it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Creator's Tests

A boldness to live escapes them.
Afraid to offend they are.
A fantasized existence is persisted,
And subdues.
A truth eludes their presence.
In an unhappiness they reflect.
Too much of it has confused.
A stubbornness has created their mental illness!
A truth within them is abused.
A deluded frame of mind they protect.
As if this is not revealed and viewed.
And they pray to God to keep their visions.
But what God decides they neglect!
They wish God to listen to them and their desires.
But they give Him no respect.
They choose to keep their eyes closed tight.
Hoping a miracle will come to remove their regret!
They want their insights to be classified as best.
Believing they are The Creator,
Instead of The Creator's tests!
They leech upon the Earth as pests.
And this they can not accept.
But they are.
We all are in this illusion!
This illusion is evolving.
It does not rest!

The Creeping Is Of No Intent to Scare

I must warn you that the creeping,
Is of no intent to scare.
I must also say the creaking heard,
On the stairs...
Are from lack of use.
No need to glare at imagined steps...
No one through thin air will be produced.

Relax.
Enjoy.
Would you like a bit of light?
Or a sip of homemade juice.
Hmmm?
Forgive the darkness of my home.
I prefer to view you with my natural eyesight.
Before you are left,
Alone.
Just for a few moments.

Would you like to slip into something more comfortable?

'Yeah!
My car.
It's right outside.
C-ya.
You did say your were eccentric!
But this...
Is too much of a nervous visit.

What in the 'hell' is THAT? '

Why do you wish to leave...
So,
Abruptly?

Prudence?
Prudence?
Where are you?

Did you rub up against,
The leg of our guest?

*Meeeooowww.*

Why are you so naughty?
Hmmm?
Did you detect homophobia?

*Meeeooowww.*

NO?
Then what else could it have been?
No more than ten minutes here,
With me was spent.
Should I or should I not,
Feel offended?
Hmmm...
Perhaps a fear of bats,
Quickened the exit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

The Critquing Done

So fortunate I have been,
Throughout my life to have met several 'Doers'.
And...
Many pretenders.
With a noticing of this:
Those 'Doers' I had observed,
Were in fact...
Doing.
With little time afforded to socialize.
Or devoting their time in the 'art' of making impressions.

However...
The 'pretenders'?
The pretenders are very vocal,
About what it is the 'Doers' do.
Or don't do.
And that depends upon who or 'whom',
Those who pretend attempt to address...
With kept impressions made.
Embellished and mostly exaggerated,
Are their activities.

Of which...
Time is given to procrastinate,
Or concentrate on entertaining listeners...
With their assessments.

'SOME people I just wont mention,
Seem to be blessed to have time doing what they 'like'.
Me?
I'm just too busy to accomplish 'anything' these days.
Meetings and appointments give me barely the time,
To find to mingle.'

And so...
The critiquing done with the passing of their judgements,
Upon the 'Doers'...
Continues.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
