Protesting Against Being Oppressed

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

What further excuses are left to use,
By those who continue to make...
Unconscious accusations.

Accusation of being disenfranchised.
And treated disrespectfully.
Done blatantly with it obvious to see.

Yet efforts to endeavor,
That gets ignored heat...
Displayed on both sides,
No one argues is concrete.
Are those attempts made on a daily basis,
By the ones already stressed by oppression.
But an extra dose of it they get,
From those protesting to claim...
Opportunities for them are limited.

'Why don't you support the ones,
Toiling everyday to get some progress done?
To realize the coming of those benefits.
You say to claim for you have become limited.'

~And what would our focus of attention to give them,
Do for the rest of us?
When it's obvious attention is all they want to get.~

'I see.
And your protesting 'collectively',
Against being oppressed...
Provides the getting to bring you what?
A future to choose your benefits?
From who or whom will you approve to do this? '
