Lock Step

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

They claim there is a failure of leadership.
But no one acknowledges,
A failure to identify...
Who amongst them had been qualified.

Since those who follow...
Had seemed to be in lock step!

And isn't uniformity...
The only thing requested,
To bring to them an approved acceptance?

With similar beliefs...
They now see,
Has brought to them an agony.
Wished in a seeking...
Someone to deliver them from their grief!
Someone 'liked' they can torment...
Who will do exactly as they please.

'But that doesn't make too much sense! '

You know that.
And I do too!
That is why we are on the sidelines,
Observing them parade around like fools!
As we rest...
After removing our boots.
Choosing to separate ourselves,
From that kind of confusion.
