Representing All Of Life

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stereotypes no longer thrive,
As realities for them anymore.
There are too many avenues,
Where truth is revealed and oozes.

There is an escape attempted now and then...
By those still proposing their point of view.

And ridiculous this becomes for the ones,
Who have committed to listen...
Since they have a self respect left that's valued.

Although to announce they are trapped amongst fools,
Would jeopardize their employment.
As well as lower their chances to get that ten cent raise!

It seems today that those 'lowlifes'...
Are representing all of life.
And folks are not so quick to admit,
They wish they were born of a different color!

Some just wish they knew more thieves and crooks!
And had lifetime 'careers' in religion and politics.
Where few are bothered to pay taxes.

Which liars deny,
They did or did not tell...
The bigger lie.
