The More Appropriate Thing To Do
Too many in the past,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Who had decided they would take...
Deliberate strolls down the wrong path,
By a choosing of those who had showed it to give...
A depth of sincerity with a rare honesty exposed.
As a given but had been picked to be depicted,
Jokes to make others behind their backs laugh.
And in public places too this gossip was passed.
Well...too many in the past,
Who had mistaken those givers of their sincerity...
As being easily used as jokes for cheap laughs,
Today may discover themselves awakening to ask...
With a comprehension to understand clearly that past,
Who truly were the fools to think of others as jokes?
Although to declare themselves idiots with truth undenied,
Would be the more appropriate thing to do.
Since this is not perceived but believed with no need of proof.
