Thank You Burt Bacharach And Hal David
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
I am not a child.
I never had that opportunity,
To invest that time in my life.
And there are many I knew...
Who had no childhood too.
So when someone immature,
Believes I will endure their childish games played...
They are often disappointed,
I am not one made that way.
I am direct and decisive.
And those who have been exposed to this...
Don't need to be told,
To keep their distance.
I am very helpful in showing those the way,
To San Jose!
Thank you Burt Bacharach and Hal David,
For that song.
And thank you Dionne Warwick,
For keeping that tune memorable.
I am appreciative to anything that benefits my existence.
