Sadness Begets Madness

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

What can be said to a people,
Heated by their self-defeat.
What can be said to a people,
Shown an ignorance taught to teach.
And to them preached in their minds to keep.

Sadness begets madness,
And feelings felt that entraps.

What can be said to a people,
Accustomed to show no respect.
What can be said to a people,
Disenfranchised and this effects.

Sadness begets madness,
And feelings felt that entraps.

What can be said to a people,
Refusing to comprehend...
What they do to each other,
Makes no sense to forever defend.

Sadness begets madness,
And feelings felt that entraps...
A stubbornness kept ever ready,
Spilling on to streets just to manifest.

What can be said to a people,
Who choose not to listen nor to understand...
Destroying themselves and their neighbors,
Only takes more away from their hands.

Sadness begets madness,
And feelings felt that entraps.
Sadness begets madness.
To leave nothing beneficial after that.

What can be said to a people,
Remaining with decisions to sit on their backs.
And what can be said to a people,
Who believe they deserve much more than that.
Because they see it on TV.
And their minds have been turned off to all facts.

Sadness begets madness,
And feelings felt that entraps.
Sadness begets madness.
To leave nothing beneficial after that.

Sadness begets madness.
With a feeding on delusions that the people greed.
Sadness begets madness.
With a truth everyday being more deceived.
Sadness begets madness.
With a wounding of minds to leave the people crazy.
Sadness begets madness.
With a wounding of minds to leave the people crazy.
