Some Lessons You Should Try Better To Learn

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Perhaps if you got up from where you sat,
You would see and determine for yourself...
What is happening in your own backyard.

'And what would that solve? '

An ending to the gossip.
And your discovery of the facts.
With a revealing of solutions,
That will prevent your unnecessary...
And wasted re-actions.

'Who told you that would happen?
My neighbors? '

Not at all.
You and not they have made complaints.
I am just making a suggestion,
I thought to you would be obvious.

'Well...
You don't live here like I do.
And if it was that obvious,
I would notice it too.'

You've got a point.
I am doing my best to learn,
To mind my own business.

'Now.
That's obvious.'

What is?

'Some lessons you should try better to learn.'

Which liars deny,
