They Will March

They will march together in unity,
With a proving they disagree...
To injustices done to them,
In their own communities.
Communities torn apart by selfisness and greed.
And a truth unfaced.
With no wish for it to see.

Few seeds are continually planted,
To safeguard the growth and to respect...
All aspects of their diversity with identities protected.
Or shown with a proudness that reflects,
A pride and dignity...
To accept and not reject.

They will march together in collective unity.
And they will fight against whomever they dislike,
If it is suggested they should self examine...
Why they can come together to march,
But can not support the doing of each other's deeds.
Or accept with belief...
They have brought upon themselves their own grief.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  13198.     

They Would Find You Amusing

People who take it upon themselves,
To feel threatened by displays of intelligence...
With an expressed lack of acceptance,
That offers them a benefit they should respect...
Prove eventually to be their own worse enemies.
Since ignorance relying on it to exist,
Suffers from not comprehending...
That a mind seeking to understand,
Is not convinced that a kept ignorance...
Succeeds in the achievement to experience life.
And only those who refuse to take steps to do this,
Will always feel threatened...
By those unafraid to explore the unknown.

'THEY 'think' they know sooo much.'

~Maybe you would too,
If you chose to move beyond your doorstep.
You'd be amazed what others accept,
In environments that have an effect on your reality.~

'What do you mean? '

~There are others who also believe themselves 'down-to-Earth'.
But for some reason they have chosen to explore
And experience their existence of it.
While you have chosen to depict people like this,
As being intelligent.
They would find you amusing like I do.~

'Oh yeah?
But who told you 'You' were intelligent? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

They Would Have Requested His Tongue

ooo...
I want to cuss so bad.

'Why don't you? '

I spent no time in the Navy.
Just a few years in the Air Force.
And we were trained to intellectualize our lives.
With a boring done of achievements made and attempted.

My dad,
On the other hand...
Had been a Merchant Marine.
He could box, cuss and swim at the same time.
And if he was alive...
I'm sure they would have requested his tongue,
To exhibit in The Smithsonian.

I would love to sit and hear him pronounce f's and t's...
Where there wasn't any.
He was highly creative and I miss him dearly.

'What cuss words do 'not' have f's and t's in them? '

Exactly!
That's what I'm saying.
He created his own!
And offended those who understimated his talents!
He was a very gifted man.

They Would Not Have Any Chance

If the man was not black...
They would not have any chance,
To regain from their losses!
But they don't know that.
They just know his skin is Black!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
