They Weren't Comprehending Then

Never have I stood in someone's face,
To place what I thought...
Would be a valued judgement.
Or criticized their chosen lifestyle,
When invited as a guest to enter their home.

Nor have I told anyone what they 'should' do.
Or how it should be done.
I wanted to!
With a wish they would overcome,
To see life from a different point of view.
But I kept my mouth shut and respected.

Unfortunately,
I was not treated with such 'maturity'.
I had been wounded with salt poured.
I've gotten over myself and those days.

However...
I am amazed by those who say to me now,
They wished they would have paid more attention.
And I wonder to myself...
To 'what'?
They weren't comprehending THEN,
To anything that was mentioned!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

'They' Who Have Answered

Every message you have delivered,
I have received them.
Every signal you have sent...
I have heard.
You wanted to contact me,
And I knew this!

Every satellite propelled in space,
Beaming with signals throughout this universe.
And rocketships sent to other planets...
Equipped with devices to depict our location,
Has been witnessed and followed...
And now it is denied,
Visitors have arrived!
And some try to hide them...
Although a request for them to be guests,
Has confused!

'They' who have answered the invitations,
Aren't amused!
Would you?
If you had replied to an RSVP...
And was refused?

'Rιpondez s'il-vous-plaξt'
~Perhaps they did not understand,
What they sent to us?
Why are they shocked?
Did they not realize we would come? ~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

'They' Will Always Be In Demand

As long as those actions taken,
Are cheap, sleazy and free...
And easy to get,
'They' will always be in demand.
By those feeding their kept beliefs.

'I would have waited until I got home,
To make such comments.
But to say them right there...
In front of the minister's face?
I thought was highly disrespectful.'

~And the demanding that I take,
Everything out of my wallet.
In front of the entire congregation...
Was what?
A calling he had from God? ~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

They Will Be Isolated

Let it be known.
I declare everyone ignoring my wishes,
To be immediately isolated.
With not another cent coming from me.
Make sure that is understood.

'Okay daddy.
You want me to tell mommy that now?
Or after I help here unpack the groceries? '

Just inform her and your betraying brother,
I will stick to my position.
If they want to be stubborn about this...
Just ensure them of my declaration,
Of having them isolated.

'Okay daddy...
But,
Are you sure?
Really really sure you don't want me,
To sneak you out tonight's supper?
We're having steak, broccoli with sweet potatoes.
And mommy is going to bake an apple pie.
Plus...
The neighbors are invited over.'

Make my demands understood.
IF my wishes are not met...
They, including the neighbors, will be isolated.
And funding for all programs will be immediately cut.

'Daddy...
But,
You are the one inside the dog house.'

Are you or are you not,
Going to deliver poste haste...
My demands?
And...this happens to be,
The guest house.

'Oh. Oh...okay.
I will.
But I've raised my fee to twenty bucks.'

Here.
Take this paper bag.
And don't let anyone see you,
Bringing to me that dinner.
If they wish to play hardball with me...
So be it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
