Just To Keep The Critics Cranky
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
Why wont you let us see,
What is going on backstage?
'And let you witness what it takes,
To get this magic produced?
Are you kidding?
Any chef would say...
If I showed you what I do,
You'd try it and raise the price.
And I just want to leave you with just a taste.
Knowing that when you've become addicted,
You will come back...
To stand in line to nibble anything I present.
I am not trying to give away my stuff.
Do you know how long it took me,
To get you to even be interested?
Mesmerizing is an ability,
That requires time to deliver.
I have to keep masqueraded,
Just to keep the critics cranky.
At my disposal.
Not in preparation.'
