Do You Still Need To Be Convinced
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Why the exasperation?
'I'm undecided as to which elitist,
Has the most pathetic...
'How I Got Rich' story.
And has convinced me...
Those I owe money to I don't have,
Will become my best friends...
After I pick one to vote for in a few weeks,
Will lower the costs of my cable bill, taxes...
Gas and oil I need with other utilities I pay.'
Let me help you!
Why did you slap me? '
I would have kicked you,
But you were sitting down.
'It makes no difference how it was done.
I would be the one to feel the pain.'
Do you still need to be convinced,
As to what decision to make?
Think of it like this...
Who's going to be left to feel the pain?
Get away with the doing of it.'
Why are you looking at 'me' like that?
You can't say I didn't add a touch of reality!
