People Want Progress - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People want progress and at its best.
But they can't seem to let go,
Of what they know that needs to change...
Without complaining,
Of how that change will affect...
What they want left kept to remain the same.

People want progress,
But only if their exceptions...
And preferences to keep,
Will be guaranteed not to leave them...
Feeling any degree of discomfort.
Or any changes made out of their control.
