Pointless Decisions Made

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is not unusual today,
To find those not keeping abreast...
Of these rapidly changing times,
Discovering themselves out of touch.
And wondering 'why',
They can not accept them.
And yet to protest they have found pointless.

Negative thinkers,
Were those who then spoke against...
Serious issues ignored,
By those who chose to sleep through them.
To now disbelieve what offends has no defense.
Nor is there empathy shown to them given.
And these are the people who sat behind fixed fences.

Attempts made to awaken,
Those deceived to broaden their minds...
And eyes to become enlightened,
Are frightened to lose their perceived entitlements...
With benefits given that would never diminished.
Or upheld standards and beliefs to value would never end.
But they have and many are saddened.

There could have been benefits enjoyed,
Through the acceptance of differences.
There could have been steps made towards progress,
For all to receive.
There could have been an end to conflicts,
And needless animosities.
But a feeding on greed and divisions were kept prioritized.

Negative thinkers,
Were those who then spoke against...
Serious issues ignored,
By those who chose to sleep through them.
To now disbelieve what offends has no defense.
Nor is there empathy shown to them given.
And these are the people who sat behind fixed fences.
To protest today against their pointless decisions made.

No one can escape from their pointless decisions made.
Or have them chased away to become erased.
To become less effective if suddenly replaced.
No one can escape from their pointless decisions made.
Or believe alternatives once mentioned,
Exist still from them to pick.
These times we live move just too quick.
