The Meaning And The Significance

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

To what significance,
Is a yesterday romanticized and depicted...
By those who chose to limit their experiences,
To focus on ideals kept to themselves...
Others remember with less zest and zeal.

To what significance,
Do nonexistent standards and values...
Only mentioned at socialized events,
Keep those pretentious with proper etiquette...
From these scenes believe they get?

And to what significance,
Are those influenced by delusions kept?
If an outdated point of view remains pursued,
When many are returning to a quality of life...
To live it basically and from pretentions to undo?

What is the meaning and the significance,
When those who once believed themselves influential...
Awaken to discover they have been made fools.
