Senseless Graffiti - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Everywhere signs have been appearing,
To end the feeding of selfishness.
And many have come forward to address the issue.
Yet others stubbornly stay,
Ignoring the times and maintaining their ways.
To believe the speed of rapid change,
Is gossip whispered by those deranged.

Everywhere the signs have been written on tall walls.
And those believing this as senseless graffiti,
An inscription on a public surface...
To admire the design and the artistic work.
With a disregarding of the message left by 'jerks'.
Having nothing else to do but seek an attention first.

Even those who yell of observing cracks in foundations,
Are thought to be out of their minds and crazed.
But everywhere the signs of this are appearing clear.
And those who have paid attention to listen and hear,
Understand the times and what comes near...
To prepare and remove themselves,
From others accustomed to be manipulated by fear.
Believing they can run somewhere to hide their denials.

The writing on the wall is for all to see,
But is it...
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.

The writing on the wall is for all to see,
But is it...
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.

The writing on the wall is for all to see,
But is it...
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.

The writing on the wall is for all to see,
But is it...
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
Is it?
Just,
Senseless graffiti.
But should it,
Be believed?
