Every Cent Spent

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Laugh.
I want you to do it,
Until you are through.

Do it with unstoppable fun.

I hope your eyes are wide open to see...
I am not blind at all to notice,
Your laughter is directed at me.

Laugh.
I want you to do it,
Until you are through.

Do it with unstoppable fun.
I'm wanting you to do this until you are done.

Laugh!
Continue on.

The expense of your humorous joviality,
Will not be paid by me.
But you.
This I guarantee.

And at these prices paid today,
For what you do...
Every cent spent,
At 'your' expense...
Comes with a receipt,
To verify the value.
Showing you the worth,
Of your actions served.

Laugh.
I want you to do it,
Until you are through.
Laugh,
Don't stop.
I encourage more of it from you!

And I promise you this...
Every cent spent,
At 'your' expense'...
Will be returned as deserved.
