  1877.     

A Slap On The Face of Democracy

Of course they could care less,
As they feed while soldiers bleed!
Those who choose their conflcits sit...
Sipping on beverages,
As patriotism is professed...
In the quiet comfort of their peaceful nests.

Not one of them ever offered to defend,
With civil duty.
But they will sit to wish destruction continues...
As they lay on couches,
To watch TV on their lazy rear ends.

And when our soldiers come home from war.
They are the last to be served.
Most of them are ignored.
And to keep a peace,
While those leech remained bored!
Is a slap on the face of democracy.
And the ones left victimized...
Are those wounded and abused,
By those selfish!
Who should be the ones despised!

'Why are you soooo angry? '

Not only am I Black.
But as a young patriotic man...
I served my country,
And that's a fact.
And those who sit back getting fat,
I disrespect.
While those who are sent to war...
Risk their lives,
To return to their homeland.
And receive not even a thank you.
But they themselves attacked.

And I have already...as a young man,
Experienced that!
And these are facts that must be changed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1878.     

A Smile A Mile Wide

It may take time alone,
To digest and then determine...
What purpose was meant,
By someone who expresses...
Negative assessments to discourage,
Followed by a smile a mile wide.
Clearly done with an evil meant intended.
To whose benefit will this be remembered?

And then...
A passing of time clears the atmosphere.
As someone thought to have been discouraged,
Comes face to face,
To a smile erased once a mile wide.
But now with eyes downcast.
And with lips that seem to grimace,
In a pain sustained.

It may take time alone,
To digest and then determine...
What purpose was meant,
By someone who expresses...
Negative assessments to discourage,
Followed by a smile a mile wide.
Clearly done with an evil meant intended.
To whose benefit will this be remembered?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1879.     

A Smudging To Fudge Up

To convince one's presence,
Has become less influencial...
A smudging to fudge up the statistics occurs.
To entice those who may follow to listen,
But less encouraged by an expression of said words...
Deemed unsuitable to those who wish to present,
A point of view to confuse and not cement...
A comprehension some may discover makes much sense.
And having minds connected with common sense,
Isn't advantageous when some undercover wish to perfect...
A doing of their best to reduce and smother the existence of truth!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1880.     

A Squeaking Wheel

A squeaking wheel,
Doesn't always get the attention.
A prevention is mentioned to avoid this,
With intention!

Those who perceive they will be embarrassed,
With an harassment that may take place.
When they are confronted face to face.
Will do the best they can to oil that squeak,
Before that wheel gets an opportunity to roll.

And there is nothing like an interrupted agenda,
That has been scheduled to move along...
With no defects to detect,
By an unexpected 'noise'.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
