With It Expected Volunteered

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

There was a time when politics,
Had been forbidden to mix with religion.
As more conflicts arise to divide,
Those with opening eyes...
And ears to hear clearly lies to them told,
No longer hidden to hide or denied today.
The marketing of lies to sell them sold,
Continues to be a much sought after...
Commodity. Demographically speaking,
Of course.

Today?
People are realizing with it understood,
They are going to be lied to on a daily basis.
While listening intently to understand,
The only truth they should pursue to comprehend...
Is the truth that best represents 'their' reality.
And not...
Who has volunteered to assist with it to believe,
A doing of buying the groceries 'AND' paying the rent.
With this done to ensure...
Peace everyday they can expect to find,
Without losing their minds inside their own homes.

And...
If peace to get with it expected volunteered,
To be delivered as a promise given...well, geessshhh.
These are the people believing themselves entitled,
To flip out of their minds anytime they wish.
With expectations others should pay for it.
Regardless who they pick to endure the circumstances.
