  2397.     

Baracked With Obamalitis

The path ahead has been cleared,
And they can see again.

Malaised with doubt and fear...
And paralyzed with beliefs,
An economic doom...
Would mushroom to leave them,
Like blinded deer!

Hypnotized by appetites...
That have kept them sitting,
In despair they believed was near.

And then a vision of light appears!
The people stand in shock.
They begin to cheer a voice...
Out of the darkness coming.
Out of the darkness,
They all hear with opened ears.

Baracked...
With Obamalitis.
A leader with moxie.
One with pop appeal that rocks,
Is here!

Baracked they are!
And sizzled with Obamalitis.
They've been inflicted with a hope.
The kind that excites.
Like the prancing done,
By speeding antelope!

They've neen Baracked...
With Obamalitis.
A leader with moxie.
One with pop appeal that rocks.

And energized like no leader before...
To bring their hopelessness to a stop!
For greater days they have yet to pave.
To shed upon their cloudy shores,
Once more to crave in their praise!

Baracked they are!
And sizzled with Obamalitis.
They've been inflicted with a hope.
The kind that excites.
Like the prancing done,
By speeding antelope!

The path ahead has been cleared,
And they can see again.

Bare

It's not for the want of 'things',
I wish.
To fulfill a need...
That would bring to me bliss.

To meet someone and there is chemistry,
Immediately recognized...
As a missing piece.
To fit instantly would please.

And with a grinning done from ear to ear,
Appearing on two faces...
Makes one thing very clear.
This is the picture from a dream that has been wished.

Leaving a feeling kept hidden,
With an exposed happiness!

'Before you go outside,
Shouldn't you dress?
At least coverup...
Your expressed gratefulness! '

~Uh...
Wow.
I'm glad it is known,
I have nothing left to confess.
You have me caring less,
I have bared my soul.~

'Just put on some clothes.
I took the day off!
That's why I am bare.
AND...
If you don't mind,
With the door closed! '

~What am I thinking?
What am I thinking? ~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2399.     

Barely Heard

What demands can you command?
When from behind shadows,
Your voice mocks and imitates.
And you fear to make a public stand.

Periodically you seem so pleased,
After everyone has left...
To allow you to announce with glee,
What was done that got you upset.

You have a nerve to emerge,
With accusations barely heard in whispers.
But reluctant you are,
To face the music to sing solo.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2400.     

Barely Noticed

I live life!
Free from trying to impress.
That seems such an outdated mindset to have.
To exist seeking approval.

I can understand that action,
When folks are attracted to one another.

But to live one's life,
Just for the sake and sacrifice...
Of pleasing someone else?
I'm not in it like that...for that.
Not like that!

However...
I do 'crave' appreciation,
Applause and standing ovations!
WHEN I am in the mood,
For that kind of attention.
Which isn't 'too' often.
Since I am a natural giver.
And I choose not to have my talents,
Taken for granted.

Do you now understand 'why'
I shy away from the spotlight?
It's just not my cup of tea...
To be smothered by fans,
And asked for my autograph!
It's soooo...
Pretentious.

And I'm not like that.
Not at all.
I'm self evolved!
With just a slight hint of ego,
Barely noticed!
And when it is...
That's rare.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
