Your Last Line...It Does Not Rhyme

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've been accused of not giving.
When that is all I've ever done.
I've also been accused of not participating,
Although when I did...
None of that from the others would come.
From anyone!
Not even 'some'.

Now that I have chosen my time not to waste,
I've been told I am ungrateful...
And self centered,
Of late.
And my response to those who bait division...
Is that we all make decisions.
And I've made mine to break away from that madness.

'Your last line...
It does not rhyme.'

And I ain't trying to find reason for it, either.
When I eat cookies and leave not a crumb...
That means I'm done!

'Cool.
That line does rhyme.'

It makes me happy you have set your priorities.
So have I.
