Rapid Satisfactions Met - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is there to read.
Judge and discuss.
But few who preview,
With a quickness to do...
Comprehend the intention.
Time and patience takes too long to tolerate.

No connection is met with an urgency,
As if people must first search for pictures to see.
With no understanding why words selected,
Were done for reasons...
By those who leave,
Hints and clues to unglue confusion.

No purpose is believed by those perceiving...
A depiction of clarity just may sit,
To go undetected.
With a reflection of it to digest.
But not many suspect,
Under the surface...
There may be depth to get.
Time and patience takes too long to tolerate.
Temptating exits and escapes await.

And yet...
Many live lives with antiseptic wishes kept.
Although contaminated,
Are most preferences accepted.
With limits conditioned that remain protected.
Addicting one's thoughtlessness with senses sent,
To medicate a fix of rapid satisfactions met.

Time and patience takes too long to tolerate,
To medicate a fix of rapid satisfactions met.
Time and patience takes too long to tolerate,
To medicate a fix of rapid satisfactions met.
With limits conditioned that remain protected.
Addicting one's thoughtlessness with senses sent.
Although contaminated,
Many live lives with antiseptic wishes kept.
