Your Own Backyard

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who sit with disbelief,
Of these times we are living in...
Are the same ones who sat,
Shaking their heads yesterday...
And the days before that,
Disbelieving those times then...
Only to have their necks stretched,
Peeking over fences with widened eyes...
And dropped jaws.

'I can't believe what's going on.'

~I can't believe you have been at that fence,
For as long as you have...'disbelieving'.
Expecially with all of that in your own backyard,
I find it not difficult to believe at all...
You still aren't convinced is your responsibility,
To not only face but spend more time to rid and clean.~
