  2029.     

Backs Packed With Baggage Carried

So much more than the facts are tapped,
To manipulate appearances...
And those distracted by an exposure of that.
Prepared most are not to lighten their loads,
From backs packed with baggage carried.

So much under the surface,
Has yet to be scratched.
With a doing on purpose to leave intact,
A truth 'if' revealed may be too much to bare.
For many unaware of the depth of it there.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Backstabbing With Gladness

What values do you have,
Would you bet your life on?
Everything you do
Seems to be superficially pursued.
You talk a good game...
But what aim do you claim?
You say you have faith?
What stance do you take?

What belief do you have,
Besides backstabbing with gladness?
And this you do,
You don't have me fooled!
Saying you are a friend,
Doesn't mean anything...
Not to me in the end!
Especially when I know,
Lieing on me gives you a glow!
And all those evil things done,
Are surfacing to show everyone!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Bad Attitude

Sometimes I wish for nothing more,
Than to repeat what had just occurred...
To relive and remember,
Until some nonsense appears...
To distract a good feeling I promised myself,
Was more important than a passing of someone else's...
Bad attitude they are unwilling to change.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2032.     

Bad 'Drivuh'

You've got a nerve.
Throwing me out onto the curb.
I've been strapped to you,
With every twist and turn.
You didn't want to yield!
But you expected me to feel...
Your nonstop speed,
With sudden heartbreaks
You would drop!
Tired burns I earned from your screeching.
And gone ignored were each caution sign,
I'd pointed out to define the course we took!
You're a bad 'drivuh', bitch!
And after I thought about it...
I'm glad I hitch-hiked my way,
Without you on a new direction!
This road is much more rewarding.
And there's not one toll on my life,
I have to pay to reach where I need to go.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
