What Would You Like To Hear?

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

People accustomed to rely on 'guardians',
They have annointed to protect them...
From the effects of reality,
Will always discover themselves upset...
When those they select to elect,
Blatantly reveal a caring that is less...
Than had been promised.

'Uh...
What would you like to hear? '

~We wanna hear what you 'gon do for us.~

'Uh...
The same thing.
Nothing is going to change.
Trust me.
You can rely on my promises to make.'

~Well,
At least we know.
And thank you for that encouragement.
There is nothing else from you we could ask.~

'Remember,
Who can you trust to keep what you value,
Kept that way? '
