  1877.     

Proletariat And Unfit

Those elitist are fighting tooth and nail,
To privatize their theft of greed with a keeping...
Of wishes sought seeking,
These activities prevail.
With promises of their theories,
To one day trickle down to those weary.

And...
Perceiving themselves to have reaping privileges,
With a harvesting they did not with a working sow...
Although they have interpretations of being entitled,
To ensure they are distanced knowingly...
From those labelled proletariat and unfit.
Hoping their actions continues to widen and grow,
With distractions upon others they bestow as being legit.
And a dripping dipped in sincerity hoping there's a buying of it.

Although,
The implementation that has initiated all of this...
With a climbing higher on a plateau to sit,
To view from separate positions of lofty self interest...
Does not in the end protect them one bit.
No!
Or prevent a losing of a grip heard from them professed,
Has had for all a shared benefit...
That time did not allow them to produce to prove or reflect,
To have their visions by others held to touch.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1878.     

Promised to Be Kept To Keep

Secrets...
That are kept,
Are secrets...
That may be wept.
To leave one with nights,
Unslept without rest.
Although promised to be kept to keep.

And secrets...
Left,
In a protectiveness...
Never regretted to forget,
Are kept secrets...
Wept.
One wishes to have ever met.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1879.     

Promises Of Honesty

I never made a promise to myself,
To stay honest.
When I felt to know the meaning of it,
It stayed and wouldn't go away.
And after years of having it as part of my life,
With it to live day and night...
Promises of honesty I hear others make,
I know immediately aren't deeply felt...
If they have to remember,
To keep honesty a promise...
And not kept believed...
That honest they should always be.
Don't promise me an honesty just be it to give!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  1880.     

Proper And/Or Acceptible Public Etiquette!

I try to release from my consciousness,
Those painful images fixed...
We all can say we survived,
But still live with.

And the only time I am reminded I have them...
Is when someone says,
I should raise and not lower my head...
To quicker dry those tears I cry!
And to wear a smile on my face instead.
With no clue...
Or point of reference,
From which I feel such depth!
Coming as it does...
When it happens,
Delivered from my point of view.

And I do my best not to express...
That these are 'my' heartfelt agonies.
When upon me,
They choose to come to visit!

And not one moment am I in thought...
With wishes to entertain,
Proper and/or acceptible public etiquette!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
