Let's Go Back To Uranus - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If my point of view offends you...
Where on Earth do you think,
In my head it was stirred and nourished from?
Neptune?
Uranus, Mercury or Mars?

MILLIONS spent to send a probe to Mars,
To discover with a validation...
Water exists and there is a probability of life.
And we are...
On Earth.
And still we are in conflict with opinions,
That are different to affect those who experience them.
To offend the ones who get upset,
Their preferred rose colored glasses...
Aren't worn by all with one mindset.

If my point of view offends you...
Or anyone else comforted by limitations too!
Where on Earth do you think,
In my head it was stirred and nourished from?
Neptune?
Uranus, Mercury or Mars?
If it was Venus,
Would I then be accused of treachery, blasphemy...
AND sabotage?

Let's go back to Uranus!

Perhaps too many of us are descendents.
With many still there with their heads stuck up.
And not prepared to flush that stuff,
To observe what's going on with a being down to Earth.
With too many faked delusions hard to shake.
