  12797.     

They Sat There To Say Nothing

He stood there in their faces,
To say he was more intelligent than they.
And that's why he was being paid,
Huge sums of money at an hourly rate...
For a purpose no one really knew!

And they sat there to say nothing...
Because they hired him to guide them.
And in their minds...
He was the best one they could find,
To tell them all how stupid they are!

While those who resided in this neighborhood,
Got up to leave from the meeting feeling offended...
Since they had been telling the same people,
Gathered to get nothing done as usual...
They were stupid for years and not getting paid a cent,
To tell them this over and over again.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12798.     

They Seek To Be Understood

Those who live unpredictable lives...
Speak of wishing to have more control over,
That which changes on a daily basis.

And they will not admit there is nothing consistent,
About their own actions they seek to be understood.
To then say they have no time to be aggravated,
By the ones who question what it is they do.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

They Should Not Be Permitted

It's out there exposed and revealed.
And within reach,
For anyone seeking it to get what is needed.
Now...
If those attempt to make claims,
The did not comprehend...
To understand the meaning of it?
To not question to obtain clarity?
But seek to keep debating,
The significance of its contents?
Well...
It was not meant for them to get,
To comprehend with a understanding.
And they should not be permitted,
To waste the time of those who had patience.
To 'then' become offended,
By a lack of empathy shown.

'Excuse me? '

~I SAID...
My next steps taken,
Is away from you for the purpose...
Not to waste another breath on you.~

'How RUDE, COLD and SELFISH.'

~Thanks.
Finally you've noticed 'something'.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

They Show Up In Droves At Funerals

I know of a place,
Where people know others
By what has been told to them.
People will say, 'Oh, I know 'them'.
I heard this and that! '
And they have had not one convesation at all.
Not with that person.

Even those related...
However they are related.
'See' each other their entire lives...
And know absolutely nothing about the other.
However...
They show up in droves at funerals.
To make pointless conversations.
And roll their eyes at those...
Because someone said they said something,
About someone else.
And they had the 'nerve' to appear to pay
Their respects!

These places exist.
Without conversations being shared,
By either the ones who have departed...
Or,
By those standing in line to feed themselves...
During the repast!
Some will take food to go.
As if at a fast food restaurant!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
