Wake Up Call

Wake up call?
What wake up call,
Is going to cause someone to perform...
Premeditated cowardly acts?

What wake up call,
Is going to snap the mind of someone,
Prepared to attack with a striking back!

Derogatory name calling to shame another,
Is kid's play.
A childish display of one's desire to have things,
Done their way...
To produce attention without seeking comprehension.
With an excuse to use...
Is a refusal of common sense.

With a follow through one chooses,
To retaliate like most fools do.

Wake up call?
What wake up call,
Is going to cause someone to perform...
Premeditated cowardly acts?

Like a thumb sucking child,
Growing up to fantasize delusions as facts.
And a mind like that...
Has been conditioned to react.
That's all!

With a wish to prove an undoing of rules.
No matter what one believes is cruel...
And unusual punishment suffered!
Instead of moving to a better situation.
And let thought and time,
Find less explosive solutions.

However...
Conditions as they are,
One can be pushed too far.
And conversations are barred...
For that one who has developed a taste,
To destruct and destroy.
