Cleverness You Wish For Me To Taste

Don't try to cuddle up to me...
Enemy I've known.
Don't believe my tolerance for you...
Is a weakness I condone.
You are just not in my vision.
Or on my agenda to address.
I see how you slither with pretentiousness.
To leave me with perceptions,
You have my goodwill to protect.
And I am to perceive you doing this at your best?

Please!
Your amusements do not delay me!
However...
Your deeds have caused me to wisen.
And keep updated versions,
Of a variety of realities!

Like these you are trying,
To test on me lately!
To see if I am awake.
For a cleverness you wish for me to taste!

Please!
Your amusements do not delay me!
Your deeds have caused me to wisen.

those who read Lawrence S. Pertillar also read; the bible and other people like the front page of a Newspaper; to find... what's really inside.
If such 'slither[ing] with pretentiousness' (fantastic use of snake like sibilance) 'have caused me to wisen' - how come it continues to happen? ! ? Intriguing employment of repetition - a wonderful tongue in cheek piece of poetry. S ;)
