Cavalcade Of Scars - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
It shouldn't take a parading,
Of a cavalcade of scars...
To display on a daily basis.
To detect the affects...
Are not inflicted upon them,
From those locked up behind prison bars.
A reception of acceptance done,
With performances to exude an intelligence...
That explains why painful events exist,
Without intervening to prevent any of it.
And yet they purchase more weapons to get,
To protect their freedoms with a selfish ignorance.
A common sense is not mentioned.
And seems to offend those behind fences.
Although an attention is given,
To those parading in a cavalcade to display their scars...
With answers to their questions,
They refuse to face.
Or eliminate a targeted hatred,
Found in their own backyards.
