Goosebumps With Shivers

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Countless nights I use to lay in fear,
Sleepless and wondering how safe...
My personal security I held dear,
Was being jeopardized by those I could not see.
Someone around me I was told to believe creeps.

Goosebumps with the shivers I would get daily!
Looking for that man who bogeyed to boo.
So I danced with a golf club in my hand.
Prepared to hit a hole in one over par.
Whenever given that chance.

And today that fear from me has ceased.
Since I discovered those wining and dining,
Have invested their self interest only...
In protecting their own treasure chests,
Kept on shores hidden somewhere overseas.

Comments about Goosebumps With Shivers

In protecting their own treasure chests, Kept on shores hidden somewhere overseas. In our part of the world, people gossip that our politicians keep their chest in other parts of the world..Wherever it is kept, how much do they get benefited personally..these people are too cheap to be the leaders of the world at the expense of the tears of others!
