Sad To Witness

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

There for no purpose and rehearsing grief,
Just to please the ambitions of one man...
Who has gotten us in deep shit,
At our expense to satisfy a disturbed ego!
Is sad to witness!
But then again...
It has been sad to witness the fact,
That he represents so many like him
Who can not accept defeat
Without ensuring everyone feels
As insecure about failure as he does!
No matter what the cost or price to be paid!
It's just a way of life for him and those he represents!
Even though what's kept in movement...
Makes no bit of sense!

Hi Lawrence, Excellent poem, and very true. People can be cruel and don't care what cost one has to pay. Take care, keep up the wonderful poetry.
