Just To Be On The Surface

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some do their 'ooohhhs and aaahhhs'
Over the appearance of things.
With a caring less of content.

If it should impress physically...
Mentally, that is all for some,
That needs to be addressed.

Many live just to be on the surface.
To shop and dress and look their best.
With little or no depth at all to express.

Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
