The Loss That Has Cost The People

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

People aren't finding it exciting,
To witness the events...
Of these times that have come.
No one is finding realities like these,
Coming as they have and to them done.

The loss that has cost the people,
Has stripped them from the benefits...
That had promises of long lasting peace.
The loss that has cost the people,
Has for many a happiness out of reach.
As conflicts faced everyday exist,
Every second common sense from them is 'dissed'.

Oh...
The quality of life is almost gone,
Every second common is dissed.
And...
More people seem to choose to do what's wrong,
Every second common sense is dissed.
And...
Pooped are the doers who have been accused,
Of offending pretentious defenders.

The loss that has cost the people,
Has left them with nothing of value earned.
The loss that has cost the people,
Has left them without even one lesson learned.
The loss that has cost the people,
Floats...
On a drifting boat.
The loss that has cost the people,
Floats isolated and is left remote.

Comments about The Loss That Has Cost The People

One sense the content is logical to demonstrate time but simultaneously the approach is not universal. Teachings of science and philosophy guide us to see any action with its reaction. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis.....Otherwise the writing skilfully crafted.
