Peppered And Sprayed

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Salted tempers rise.
As if suddenly people realize,
Overnight...
Wishes to live their lives,
Has been compromised,
While they slept peacefully...
Clinching onto their entitlements.
From them now being snatched away.

And today peppered and sprayed,
They find themselves awakened...
By their own selfish ways.
Believing themselves to be...
Among the untouchables,
To do as they please.
Now disbelieving they too can bleed.
And forced to feel discomfort.

Who knew they too,
Would eventually view themselves as human.
To be treated as used and tenderized meat.
Feeding the same beast,
They would never believe would eat to defeat them.
