Unedited For Maximum Affect
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Sticking to repeated hopes?
To bring a diminishing gloss,
Back to sparkle a reflection...
Of a quality of life lost in retrospection?
An accepting of the dullness has been rejected?
That is expected!
'FOUND SLICED FROM PREVIOUS TAPINGS,
BUT APPROPRIATE FOR THIS SCENE':
A loaf of bread is now more than a dollar.
Price for utilities make folks holler.
Where are those savings for retirement?
'Is that a hand slipping into the piggybank?
Sneaking pennies to help pay rent? '
'CUT...STOP ACTION! '
Please folks calm down.
We know you are frustrated.
But the makeup runs,
With your heated arguments!
'AND...ROLL FILM! '
Do you treat yourself with sweets?
Or are you seeking change,
To buy a couple of aspirin...
For a headache that keeps beating,
Constantly without end?
Are you finding yourself the next to receive,
A warm smile with a pink slip?
Get over it!
Even someone has to clean the toilets,
At every Disneyland.
And your fantasies and delusions,
Have a flipside you may not like.
You may wish this out of your sight!
Finding that side the one you can not stand!
'AND...CUT! THAT'S a WRAP! '
This is your life!
A view you can trust is without rumor.
Complete with raw footage.
Unedited for maximun affect!
And without instrumentation.
If you wish to have orchestration...
That will be an additional fee!
I also compose!
I'd say this project should be finished in a few years.
We'll let you know.
You folks have been great!
You can return back to your pretensions!
