This Introduces Suspicion

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why is it,
People minding their own business...
Are today the ones suspect?

And they are the very same people,
Who wanted to give of themselves...
With interest and a self respect.

The very same people,
Others chose to disregard and reject.
And now those who once gave,
Of themselves to neglect...
Have decided to mind their own business.
And they have become the ones,
Focused upon...
As if their doings,
Will bring them too much attention.

And this introduces suspicion...
Since their peaceful existence,
Poses to others...
With innuendos whispered,
That those with peace of mind...
Should be considered by others as threats!

Even making a decision to mind one's business,
Gives others to feel there is a reason...
To have none of their own.
And the evidence of that is shown.
