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!
MAYBE...
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! '

Self-Editing

Knowing what self-editing means,
Takes life to live and experiencing...
Actively listening.
And with it done to pay attention,
To then comprehend...
What to respect and accept,
Before one allows ignorance...
To come out of one's mouth.
Or expect remarks or an action taken,

[Hata Bildir]
