Stripped Free Of All Foolishness

I live my life to achieve,
With the getting of results.
There is no place I make,
For the celebrating of nonsense.
Nor will I welcome a visit of it to stay.
Too many have become addicted to it.

Only one time did I play along,
With that follow the leader concept.
And I had been in the military,
Being trained to be one.
'Stand straight, shut up and listen.
Unless you prefer licking my boots? '

To be stripped free of all foolishness,
Is no fun when someone else is in command.
And demanding it to be done 24/7,
With orders barked and nowhere to run.
Or hoping that a drill sargeant will ignore,
The revealing of fears or hears a call out for 'mama'.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stripped, Clawed And Flawed

Too many rather skip to a bar and nip.
Until they feel an alcoholic 'trip'.
And sit refusing to admit...
They're drowning denials that cause them fits.

Too many feel henpecked and nitpicked.
By spouses ripping them to bits.
And they choose then to bemoan their whims.
With others near,
Befriending them!

Spending every dime and feeling sick.
Leaving drunk with no left tip!
Stripped, clawed and flawed,
From a baring of emotions felt so raw!

Spending every dime and feeling sick.
Leaving drunk with no left tip!
Stripped, clawed and flawed.
And wishing they had not flapped,
Or dropped jaws.

Stripped, clawed and flawed,
From a baring of emotions felt so raw!
Around strangers who now know all!
And wishing they had not dropped jaws.

Stripped,
Clawed and flawed.
From a baring of emotions felt so raw!
Around strangers who now know all!
And wishing they had not dropped jaws!

Stripped,
Clawed and flawed.

'You left me not tip? '

Flawed and clawed.

'You left me not tip? '

Clawed and flawed

'You left me not tip? '

Flawed and clawed.

Stripped,
Clawed and flawed.

'You left me not tip? '

Flawed and clawed.

'You left me not tip? '

Clawed and flawed.

'You left me not tip? '

Flawed and clawed.

Stripped,
Clawed and flawed!

Strips Of Montaged Clips

Zooming in with specific interest,
To examine strips of montaged clips...
Snipped and pieced together to depict,
People enjoying their decadence.

But only a few do I see,
Actually laboring to enable themselves...
With earnings gained to afford it.
While many others seem to lay around,
Looking for ways to get paid...
At someone else's expense.

'Have these pictures been doctored?
Have they been pasted together to represent,
A 'theme' you've chosen just to display a decadence? '

~Not at all.
They appear to be strips of montaged clips.
And I did no doctoring to alter the appearance.
Why do you ask me this? ~

'I do not object to the decadence.
I know for myself the tremendous expense of it.
However...
Besides the absence of psychiatrists,
Or anyone monitoring these social habits.
I can not believe the leeches I see,
Are welcomed as if they are tolerated.'

~No one can.
That's why my exhibits have been highly successful,
By those who come here to visit...
Disbelieving what I capture are facts.
And not re-enactments to attract.
How many copies do you want? ~

'How many can I get? '

~How much cash do you have?
I don't do lay-away or credit.~

'Gee.
I can give you my Mercedes? '

~What year is it? ~

Stroking Their Egos

What are they doing over there?

'Stroking their egos.'

Why have none of the tasks required,
And assigned to be done...
Have not been touched.
Or given priority?

'Remember...
When it was suggested to you,
Not to issue them titles?
Well...
Try to get them to do anything now.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
