Unaddressed Outlook

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Caught up in the failure of their defended nonsense,
It must be difficult for them to admit...
Every aspect of a belief system they praise,
Craves overhauling.

Its antiquated philosophies do not work.
Its Cowboy and Indian based economies...
Find admirations diminished.
Especially when those once considered 'Third World'
Are producing nuclear bombs.
And spending Euros in New York City.

Propaganda isn't what it use to be!
It use to be believed.
Or at least respected,
To initiate from a place that offered more...
Than refinanced insecurities of the greedy,
And the shallow intentions of corporate theives!

Remember the days when the minds of those,
Were focused on racism?
And the needs for whites to keep blacks in their 'places'?
Except for entertainment purposes!
And the reflection of that kind of mindset...
Has had a pre-eminence throughout their existence.
And with that same unaddressed outlook...
They are trying to adapt to their dilemmas.
Eroding on all fronts.
Fearing they will show weakness.
Instead of the insanity that is exposed.
