Sanity Accepted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It seems those who resent,
The re-interpreting of 'their' versions told...
Of lives lived to experience,
Are the ones with perceptions given...
From distances and not one moment spent,
Doing it to live but through the use...
Of borrowed sensationalized imaginations.
Seduced by delusions hyped and fictionalized,
To compare to existing myths...
Caricatured and stereotyped to depict,
A fantasize marketing that brings a comfort...
To a reality already thriving on dysfunctions.
And choosing many do a refusing of the truth.
Since sanity accepted today is not a profit maker.
