The Agenda Will Remain As It Is - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Anyone believing my creativity,
I do not take seriously...
Would have to take the 61 years,
Of my active and documented participation...
To show me 'where' this evidence,
Has NOT been proven.
Even though,
Time to waste to convince...
Is not within the elements of my expertise.

Now...
If it is claimed,
That within those 61 years of my affiliation to be active...
In a 'declared' participation has not brought to me,
A profit I could pocket?
There is no argument I have about that.
Many have died to 'thrive' after life.

However...
I have had many heated debates,
With those who believe my efforts should 'feed' them.
And this to them I can only say...
They will just have to wait until God provides that directive.
And God and I have been 'tight' for 66 years.
Thus...
The agenda will remain as it is.
Until God sees fit,
To shower me with trinkets from 'His' Kingdom.

    I detect
    no bitterness
    by some whom would
    given similar
    circumstances
    keep writting on....iip (Report) Reply
