Dissension Committed

There are those who have gone on vacation,
To escape from realities they just can not face.
And remain unaccountable with that choice to make,
With beliefs to keep their irresponsibilities...
On someone else's shoulders to carry and burden,
The weight on them placed with accusations made.

Dissension committed to allow to go on,
From dusk until dawn...
Continues to be permitted,
By the ones consenting to agree to it.
And others who defend pretensions that don't end,
Become offended when truth to them is introduced.

There are those who have gone on vacation,
To escape from realities they just can not face.
And remain unaccountable as if prioritized and scheduled,
From dusk until dawn...
With a dissension committed to allow to go on.
And those agreeing to consent to this,
Deserve the confusion and the conflicts they get that exist.

And the irony?
Many still perceive they can do as they please,
To expect a unity of indecisive people...
Who themselves deceive.
But yet...
Prepared they believe they are with a readiness to mend,
And fix...
All of their mental and accepted illnesses kept denied.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
