Business Is Business

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

You can not evict me!
I have a BA degree.

'AND...
Cut.
That was wonderful.
Next.'

You can not evict me!
I have a Master's in Engineering.

'And...
Cut.
I loved your attitude
Inspiring!
And next, please.'

You can not evict me.
Everything. EVERYTHING...
I own,
Has been repossessed.
You can not do this to me!
I have a Doctorate's Degree in Psychology.
Please.

'And...
Cut.
That was fabulous.
I loved the tears.
But keep this in mind...
To own is a debatable opinion.
And that concept is fading fast.

Now...
I can not promise you,
You will get your homes back.
But I will guarantee you all this...
We will keep your profiles on hand,
And as soon as our foreign investors arrive...
We will see which one of you,
Will be picked to represent their diversity campaign.

However...
All of you should feel proud.
I have never filmed such heart wrenching,
And quite believable emotional moments.
I am sure...
As the fees I've collected from you,
'Someone' will be impressed with your talents.
Although...
And you all know this,
Business IS business.'
