Pointless Without Thought and Senseless

IF it is 'fact' and is true,
That trash collects on your side of the fence...
With an intention to do,
To reflect a perception kept...
You seem to accept and protect.
WHY do you become offended,
By a perception you have given to others...
Who bring this to your attention?

Especially on the same disrespecting level,
You loudly exclaim to mention publicly.
And with a doing you have done to yourself?
No one else you have accused!
But yet...
You expect others to run to your defense.
Proving your mind is irresponsible AND dense.

IF you cleaned up your trash on 'your' side of the fence,
Perhaps those who find your opposition to their actions...
And comments made you find do not represent,
The reality YOU present.
Maybe. Just 'maybe'...
Others may not take what you have validated as shown,
Pointless without thought and senseless afterall.

More than protesting may be needed as proof!
