In Cliques And Divisions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Prancing around and in dance,
They meet in false enhanced appearances...
To exchange impressions but nothing else concrete.

Personalities adapted to adopt recognition.
With initiative that represents,
A gaining of attention meant.

Gather they do in cliques and divisions,
To implement a getting...
From others in attendance a satisfaction intended.

And only for one purpose to seek popularity achieved.
Yet nothing done they do in groups,
Has the future generations connected to follow through.

Establishing strong foundations.
That reflects a doing with identity and discipline...
With patience to comprehend escapes from them.

'Aunt Shemeika? '

~Boy, what is it? ~

'Why don't we have businesses and stores of all kinds,
In our own neighborhood? '

'Can't you see,
I'm getting ready to go out to the club? '

Personalities adapted to adopt recognition.
With initiative that represents,
A gaining of attention meant.

Gather they do in cliques and divisions,
To implement a getting...
From others in attendance a satisfaction intended.

To greet and meet,
And exchange impressions but nothing else concrete.
Except themselves...in shared cells!
