What A Remarkable Achievement

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

What has been done,
Has been done.
What has been said,
Has been said.
But the affect of those fresh platitudes,
Seem to be capturing the attention.
And turning everyone's head.

Not only are they original...
They also provide,
An escape route for those misdemeanors.
And an opportunity for the culprits,
To proclaim an innocence instead.
What a remarkable achievement.
