Like All Of Their Other Excuses
One man has been in their presence,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
For just a few years.
Their policies have been eroding for decades.
And yet a crisis that besets them...
They claim he has caused.
By exposing their flaws and misdeeds.
This they wish,
Those absent of a consciousness...
Will accept and believe.
Like all of their other excuses,
Laid at someone else's doorstep.
