'Lobbying For Change'
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
I had to come to their defense.
Since it was claimed,
They were on private property.
And upsetting residents.
I quickly demanded to see the manager.
The people were 'lobbying for change'
Something we all are seeking.
Especially during these times,
Of severe need.
'Hopefully, that can be agreed? '
Unless adverse publicity is sought?
And 'that' somehow was discouraged!
Since property taxes were overdue.
And that fact was a known issue.
That could undo.
If harrassments continued...
To be pursued!
~What is this?
Some sleaze of a 'blackmail'? ~
You're trying to make this personal!
As if I am without an identity or intergrity,
That does not possess a wholesomeness...
Up and above such lowlife remarks!
How much is it worth to you? '
~How much is 'what' worth to me? ~
'My talents? '
