Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Seeking Reason For The Cause
Speculation is what a spectator does.
Those with priorities to uncover facts,
Are not normally found tossing gossip around.
To then whisper in ears,
What they wish someone else to hear...
Unproven and based upon an attention to get.
Those with a mindset seeking reason for the cause,
First learn from their own experiences...
If they do not conduct their own investigation,
With a doing to diminish speculation...
The only conclusion they will reach after participating,
Is a confusion that teaches conflict and not resolution.
