  • First qualify you can identify,
    What the lesson is to be taught.
    If a position of wisdom is to be taken.
    And before claiming a success to get,
    Can be achieved...
    To a life lived overcoming my own obstacles.

    I've read a few of your poems selected at random, and I find them to be powerful, yet very well thought out. But over all, what impresess me the most, is your consistency and dedication. It is a pleasure reading your works. Greetings

    Hi lawrence. Your words are moving. They take semantics to exponential contexture.. Your poem Baffled is just. Please feel free to shed light on my poem Baffled as well. Nowvwe are two pioneers baffling esoteric linguistics..

    Lawrence is a very good Poet. He uses his words wisely
    and with distinction. I am very honored to be a part of
    of his poetry fellowship. In plain old fashioned words he
    does not Beat around the bush in his usage of the
    English language. Thanks to you honorable poet.

    Lawrence is a great poet. He knows how to make his poetry flow with good rhythm and rime, while at the same time he knows how to depict his message through his tone of voice. He is probably one of the great modern poets of all time.

  • Silver Star - 4,093 Points Wahab Abdul (5/6/2012 10:35:00 AM)

    He is one of the greatest poems among the moderns, he is one of my favorites, he is innovative and leader of our time in the field of poetry.

    As Lawrence does not write like me, I like to read his poem. His poems do not have any attachment and it looks very strange to me. A Good poet.

Best Poem of Lawrence S. Pertillar

$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '
