Accepted To Defend

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

All things were finalized.
And then the people realized,
Their self-indulgence had them enclosed.
But too late,
To vacate...
Or replace the changes.

Duped and tricked.
With a feeding on deceptions,
They accepted to defend.

All things were finalized.
And then the people realized,
They were duped and tricked.
With a feeding on deceptions,
They accepted to defend.
But too late,
To vacate...
Or replace the changes.

A self-indulgence that began...
They did not think would ever end.
And defended they did,
Against any truth that offended them.
But...
Too late to vacate,
Those changes made.
Too late to escape,
Changes made!

All things were finalized.
And then the people realized,
It was too late,
To chase away those changes made.

Duped and tricked.
With a feeding on deceptions.
And...
Duped and tricked.
And...
Accepted to defend.
And...
Accepted to defend.
