Speeding Too Rapidly To Limit Or Condense

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

So many are wishing to live a yesterday gone.
Quotes of poets from centuries past,
Are used to compare to current events.
With hopes to inspire desires to diminish,
Complex and advanced exposed experiences...
Speeding too rapidly to limit or condense.

And documents quilled on parchment paper,
Fading from a time no longer known to be loved...
Have suddenly become the focus of attention.
To interpret entitlements that make little sense,
In these days when electronic messages...
Are created and in seconds sent.

Standards and values many followed to believe,
Have lost more than just a credibility.
Not too many people are convinced today,
That their best interest is to have things their way.
Especially if their way has led to confusion and conflict.
And a lot of that exists,
But not in the poems of long gone poets.
