One Has Standards To Maintain
Are you a joke?
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Or is this an inappropriate time,
For your life to be lived.
And your dreams of securing a house,
With a white picket fence...
Seems too rich in delusion.
Lacking in an acceptance of reality.
And you laugh at 'me' and my perceptions,
One of us desires for yesterday to make a comeback.
And the other refuses to accept anything from yesterday,
Including those delusions,
Assembled for a fast marketing of trash repackaged.
One has standards to maintain.
Has a sanity to protect.
