When Lessons Are Learned

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar



No 'buts'
Just hush.

'There is a...'

No there,
Just hush.
And hurry up.
I'm late enough as it is.
I can catch up to the bus...
So I wont have to take you,
All the way to school.

'Good luck.
They came to tow the car away...
5 minutes ago.'


'I tried to tell you...
But you told me to hush.'

When did you ever listen to me?

How do I know when lessons are learned?
And which ones should I ignore? '
