Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
One's fame, fortune and success to achieve,
Sometimes may give them the right to feel...
They can re-write the rules of morality.
To believe an anointing of self-importance obtained,
Removes the blemishes and defects that stains...
Upon a life in darkened shadows kept discreet.
With temptations secretly addicting to excuse,
To be left hidden and protected to accept...
While abusing those unsuspecting but later detect,
To do as long as they keep denials in check.
And a self-righteous to live life publicly entertaining.
For causes to keep their despicable flaws unknown.
