Aged Excuses

Aged excuses to use and betray common sense,
Have been the same excuses made today to make okay...
A repeating of what has happened in the past,
With a doing that has established the building of fences.
As if alibis to reconstruct can be relied upon,
To solidify values weakened by divisions.
With a strengthening in these times to ensure those patient,
A crumbling of foundations have been purposely meant.
And a unified effort will cement them back again.

However...
People who have made those aged excuses,
Can not from them just escape.
To then blame the ones they have chased away,
For not staying to participate in the havoc or disarray.

Those who have convinced others,
With pretense they are qualified with credentials...
Certified and documented to do what it takes,
With decisions made still awaiting in procrastination...
Have yet to prove what they intend with a doing done to do,
Is without petty jealousies or incompetence...
Which has delayed progress with aged excuses they've created.

'I just want to say one thing.'

~And? ~

'I just want to say...
If we agree to meet again like this,
I suggest someone bring more potato salad...
Baked and 'not' fried chicken wings.
And less vinegar added to the collard greens.'

~Do you know how serious your accusations are?
You could have volunteered to sit on that committee.
That was the first priority we discussed.
And where were you when we were faced with these dilemmas?
Hmmm?
And don't attempt to bring that up now.
We have yet to confirm the building of the next playground,
To keep our growing children occupied and off the streets.
It is the people like you that keep us from fulfilling our dreams.~

Aggravating Children

Those who repeatedly rely upon immature techniques,
With expectations to receive the same results achieved...
Are those who can be found weeping in disbelief,
To discover few have tolerance...
For the ones who have physically aged with time,
But in their minds they remain aggravating children.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2031.     

Aggressing Their Way Into Total Isolation

Aggressing their way into total isolation.
As demands for their way of life,
Burdens humanity.
And focuses all to the core of this strife.
With weapons used to end conflict...
Only resulting in the advancement of it.

And those who believe,
These antiquated methods...
Proves a superiority.
With a condoned authority!
Will see in such ignorance,
The beginnings of self hatred.

With an inner guilt that does not diminish.
When the 'spirits' of the heavens...
Releases upon them,
A taste of their own wickedness.

And it comes as a welcome.
With no enforcements,
Coming that can combat it.
Or other mortal 'rulers'...
Combining in like mindsets,
Defending them to dispense...
Upon them favoritism.
As all will witness this affect,
That humbles and corrects!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Aint 'Bout to Give It Up No Time Soon

What do you want?
An experience to please,
In an escaping escapade?

Do you wish someone to comfort you...
As you go through a period of boredom,
In a relationship.
No longer blistering with excitement?

What are your needs?
And please don't say a lack of affection!
I've gone through that before myself.
Only to discover my own selfishness.

How do I survive without companionship?
That's easy!
I listen to people like you...
Prepared to cheat on their spouses.
And when I return home...
I am glad I don't have to confess,
To a place I am blessed to declare all mine!
And I can walk around naked if I so choose.
Feeling thankful and suspicion free.

And if 'anyone' wants to deal with me...?
Believe me it will be on my terms.
This happiness I've earned!
And I aint 'bout to give it up...
No time soon.

So...
What expectation are you anticipating?
Daily discreeted meets?
Or a fling or two during the week?
I don't accept sleepovers.
I'm reserving that...
For someone who comes along.
And unexpectedly can curl my toes.

However...
You wouldn't know that.
Especially if you sought a donation.
And I was in the mood to provide a charity visit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
