Used For Centuries To Do
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
It is intended and meant,
To have fear mentioned.
And its presence offending,
Everyone with contempt.
These events are invented.
Much like a charading of pretentiousness.
The same tactic has been used,
For centuries to do.
With a doing to create enemies.
And a choosing of which ones,
Fill those shoes.
And witnessing to view this practice,
By those who approach,
As if to befriend others innocent...
I am yet to be convinced,
The ones who choose...
A minding of their own business,
Are doing this defensively...
To allow people they don't know,
The freedom to trespass beyond backyards.
While doing it disrespectly to then profess,
A climbing over fences to pretend they are there...
To provide unsolicited assistance.
Like a cancer that spreads to expect acceptance.
