Details

Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)



The facts to us as they appear,
Will soon be revealed in detail.
As proof to produce it.

'And...
When to all of 'us' kept away from it,
Be exposed to your findings?'

As soon as we can create,
An explanation as to why the details...
Appear to be recently created to fake.

'Forget the making of excuses.
And listen closely to my question.
And...
What it is I am asking.
You ready?'

Yes.

'We...
Seek whatever facts you have.
When will those fresh facts faked,
Be available to scrutinize?
To allow us to pretend not to notice,
They were fakely created.'

If I understand what you are saying.
It's within the details.
And how well we can fake the facts?

'No!
It is within the details to present them.
Not to notice how well,
You were capable to fake the facts.
Without us to notice that.'

Then...
How can we convince to you,
Our efforts to endeavor...
Merits,
A positive decision you will make...
That will benefit us?

'If...
I wore,
Mixed not to ever match socks.
And used deodorant,
Just under one arm after a shower.
To whom would this make a difference?'

That depends!

'On...what?'

Who or whomever it is,
You expect to impress.
By doing something you already know,
Is too stupid to respond...
With a logical comment.
