Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
In Places Observed
So accustomed to sabotaging themselves,
To achieve an expected result...
From a routine practiced and done,
They are often seen running as if excited...
Back to those who repress them and oppress...
As support is given with approval gained.
And from them more advice they immediately get,
With instructions how to undermine and quick...
Anyone who represents an idenitity with confidence,
Displayed as if they were born with it.
That's just the way it is to be witnessed,
In places observed where this exists.
