It Is Difficult Being An Adult

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I return exactly what I get.
If my name is not on it with respect.

'You know that is not acceptable? '

Acceptable or not,
I am not keeping what isn't mine.
And it is difficult being an adult,
When many who look like they are...
Prefer to play checkers.

And you?
You play 'no' games?

'Yes I do.
I enjoy the playing of chess.'

Very few are patient.
And haven't learned to play that yet.

I'll admit that as a growing man I have never mastered the art of chess, although I do have a decent poker face. A fantastic write that put a smile on a dreary day.
