Downfall Of An Industry - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

He wishes to be right.
And incite he does debate.
Not listen for those solutions.
And what those conclusions for all,
Might celebrate.

Of course millions of dollars are at stake.
And present lifestyles enjoyed,
By physicians associated with new pharmaceuticals...
May not from decisions escape.
The threatening downfall of an industry...
On the verge of a collapsing devastating break.

Not to mention...
At the saving of tons of money!

And there are those hoping to block,
With a stopping of this activity!
Shaking in their high priced Guccis.
Loudly declaring these acts,
Do not represent democracy!

'Excuse me,
But aren't our allegiances pledged to a republic,
For which it stands? '

Please...
Not you again! ?

Security? SECURITY? ?
Bar that individual from free speech.
And strip that clown disguise,
Off that crazed man!

We are here to discuss the future of health care.
Not to turn this into a circus.
Unless we begin to collect a fare!
And that may be an implementation...
To gain the attention of those who are serious.
And will assist with the infliction of our purpose.
Hmmm...
Jot that down.
The atmosphere is 'brimming' with ideas.
