Bad mouthers who campaign successfully,
To reduce the influence of those with integrity...
With a doing to have others follow their lead,
Find themselves in positions to expose...
An absence of credibility,
As well as a nonexistent competence.
And to the disgust of those disappointed others,
Finding they openly express their druthers...
That the ones they chose to disrespect and dismiss,
With their qualifications to be missed...
Approaching them with apologies voiced,
Is as futile as admitting a mistake to follow...
Decisions made by bad mouthers to allow.
'You want me to reconsider,
A forgiving to forget my character you've assassinated? '
~I know it sounds crazy.~
'No. Not at all.
I've come to expect but not accept foolishness.
It doesn't sound 'crazy'.
It sounds absolutely stupid...
That you would think I would consider it.
And not have a consciousness to protect.
Go back to the playground with the other aging swingers.'
