To Do To...

To do to...
Study etiquette.
Study,
Correctness.
Study...
Which is proper social acceptance.
Study,
The right.
Study,
The left.
Don't study those ways some say reject.

To do to...
Be prepared for tests.
To do to...
Not sit around to guess.
To do to...
Be discrete and still feel equal,
To jump for a carrot that looks the best.
With a doing to...
Study in those limits to keep.
But don't you...
Go beyond to seek,
To do to...
With a boldness to unfold,
Success and opportunity.

To do to...
Study etiquette.
Study,
Correctness.
Study...
Which is proper social acceptance.
Study,
The right.
Study,
The left.
Don't study those ways some say reject.

And don't do...
Anything other than told.
And don't do...
What may be upsetting,
To those who put limits to your goals.

To do to...
Be prepared for tests.
To do to...
Not sit around to guess.
To do to...
Be discrete and still feel equal,
To jump for a carrot that looks the best.
With a doing to...
Study in those limits to keep.
But don't you...
Go beyond to seek,
A reaching that sets you apart...
From those who have no vision.
Without getting their permission.

To do to...
Stay conformed.
And,
To do to...
Stay uninformed.
And,
To do to...
Not to offend those incompetent,
To offend unintended their pretense.

To do to...
Follow rules.
And,
To do to...
Be accepted.
And,
To do to...
Not upset those who suspect,
Your mind is used to be effective.

To do to...
Follow rules.
And,
To do to...
Be accepted.
And,
To do to...
Not upset those who suspect,
Your mind is used to be effective.

To Do What I Should Have Done

If I didn't,
Then who would?

'Then who would,
Do what? '

That which I didn't do.

'What is it that you do? '

I don't know.
I haven't done it yet.

'Then why worry about,
Someone else doing it? '

And then again,
If I went ahead and did it,
It would be done.

'Well...
Why don't you do it? '

That's the point I am making.
I want to do it...
But,
What is it that I want to do?

HEY...
Why are you walking away?

'To do what I should have done,
The moment you opened your mouth.'

Is that suppose to be funny?
Well...

IT ISN'T.

To Do With A Doing Done

Things,
I could not get to touch...
Use to bother me.
And my wishes to want what I wanted,
So much without waiting.

Things,
I could not receive immediately...
Teased my mind and I would climb trees,
Literally.
To sit as high as I could on a branch I reached,
When I was younger and full of unlimited energy.

I fantasized my life as a bird flying high.
No one never told me I couldn't.
And I tried and tried until I would end up crying.
Disbelieving that my wishes,
Weren't so easily coming to me.

Things,
I could not receive immediately...
Teased my mind and I would climb trees,
Literally.
To sit as high as I could on a branch I reached,
When I was younger and full of unlimited energy.

Today acknowledging the many stages I have graced,
With so many dreams thought impossible...
That came to stare me in the face.
I know now it wasn't about 'things' I wanted to embrace.
It was about what I thought I could not achieve...
But did because my wants kept me haunted,
To continue that which I dreamed to do with a doing done.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

To Do Without Those Needless Comforts

'Naturally...
Our concerns are with those average families,
Like ours
Who struggle to maintain some degree of normalcy.
Especially during these distressing economic times,
Of severe cutbacks and unexpected belt tightening.
It is utter madness!
I can not express the number of decisions we've made,
To do without those needless comforts.

Bertram?
When you are done dusting my Mercedes,
Would you please bring to me
A small glass of Moet from the guest quarters.
And for the missus,
Just a spot of sherry with the last of the imported caviar!

Even our neighbors living here on the island,
Have voiced their complaints...
Of having to purchase smaller planes,
For reduced spending during our shopping sprees
To Moroco.
It's becoming totally outrageous these sacrifices.
The heartbreak we currently face,
Goes unexplained.
It's painful to see the pets go without their steamed veggies.
We had to take Max to the vet!
He refuses to eat the roasted chicken.
Would you'd like another vodka twist? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
