Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Communicated To Heal Disparities
Glamoured and left blind,
By a need to get an attention given.
Romanticized by fantasies,
Adulation pleases to satisfy.
As egos thirst for popularity.
With an indulgence to feel important.
Those absorbed in self orbiting egos,
Feast to feed on sincerity paraded to charade.
And history proves when research is revealed,
Few egos have efforts communicated to heal...
Disparities existing to correct and mend,
When egos bask alone in a limelight that begins.
