Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Been There And Done That To See
I have already been there,
To witness the same things done.
With the hearing of the same excuses made.
And the attempts by others to do 'something',
Sabotaged by those camouflaged in sincerity!
Coming to backbite with united efforts,
As others ensure one of their own is defeated.
I have already been there and done that to see.
The countless liars deceiving their own families,
Just to get paid some attention or their names mentioned.
And using their best efforts to secretly be discreet.
Yes, these are the people still seen on city streets,
Pretending their self righteousness and faked impressions...
Should protect them from their discretions and duping deeds.
