If It Wasn't As It Is


If it wasn't as it is to be noticed and accepted,
The many who oppose would have no reason to object...
To its presence that is obvious.
If they were not told they had the right to oppose,
And to do so is their entitlement to be indecisive.

If it wasn't as it is to be noticed and accepted,
With the attention of it that it gets...
Few who mention any attention to it to give.
Nor would there be those who choose to be upset,
Just for the purpose to object and reject whatever it is!

'Why are they here and what is it that they oppose? '

~They have not disclosed their reasons yet.
But it has been rumored someone will announce,
Their efforts to protest is legitimate 'and' effective.
And to do this is their right, regardless.~
