The Selling Of Threats And Fear

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Truth with a seeking of it sought,
Eventually returns prosperity to the people...
Where it belongs to prove this more cost effective,
Than having corruption fail and hit brick walls...
By those incompetent with beliefs,
That the selling of threats and fear...
Would keep a few with their pockets full.
Only to discover themselves the ones,
Borrowing to pay to keep people deceived.
And an economy that thrives doesn't work that way.

'One day fools will awaken,
To realize how high the price paid to keep fear a reality.
Economies that thrive can not stay alive without the people.'

The selling of threats and fear,
Eventually depletes the pockets of those...
Who believe themselves left in control.
And of what?
Total devastation to again repeat regrets?
What crazed mindset is left isolated,
To 'assume' with this believed that this is progress?
And who is it that perceives they will be left in peace eternally?
What agreement would be made between those contolled,
To be forever satisfied by the few making these decisions.

Selling of threats and fear never works before truth although bring clumsiness in life. Nice realization and beautifully composed poem on fear topic.
