What About The Wind And How It Shifts?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Explain to me this...
WHY do you continue to be supportive,
Of someone with such an arrogant attitude?
No one can believe a word,
Dripping from those lips.
Everything I've heard sounds absurd.

'You see that basket of food on my table?
Does it look real to you?
Does it exists? '

Yes I do.
It appears to be true.

'That food does not exist,
Because I am waiting...
For a delivery of promises.
Each day when I arrive to my home,
Someone I do know you do not condone...
Is not anonymous to me.'

But you should support someone,
Who has a list of doable objectives.

'I have one objective of my own right now.
And that is to eat in peace after you leave.
I have the change I believe in.'

But what about jobs and the economy?

'What about the wind and how it shifts? '
