More Visual Than Not - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Remember this...
When you decided,
To silence your lips.
Believing problems others had...
Were not yours to exist.

And you pointed your fingers,
With judgements passed?
While your assets dwindled.
As those 'others' you trashed!

Your opinion now expressed...
Has less influence than your crab grass.
Or the effective use of a lawn mower,
When it was needed.
To do a job now long ignored!

It is better left to collect cobwebs and dust.
Instead of making meaningless threats...
No one within hearing distance takes seriously.
Since the evidence becomes more visual than not!
And apparently someone has spent too much time sleeping.
