Spoiled And Demanding - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Noticeable it is,
For those kept abreast and conscious of it...
A known point sought when reached,
Has no return to an innocence left.

A spoiled child thought cute when born,
And left to grow without discipline...
Often becomes a self-centered adult.
Spoiled and demanding with no empathy felt.

A people believing themselves great and special,
Develop less discipline and express no respect.
Spend time they do to pass judgements on others,
As if in the doing their spoiled demands have influence.

Noticeable it is,
For those kept abreast and conscious of it...
A known point sought when reached,
Has no return to an innocence left.

And we are living in the midst to witness this.
A spoiled and undisciplined people...
Inflicting their conflicts on others with their demands.
To claim they protect interests,
Of those with similar childish mindsets.

The hype of this may excite advertisers,
Solicited to assist in marketed delusions promoted.
But the truth left sweetly smothered with attempts,
To ignore a contempt interpreted as adulation...
Does not appease those who wish childish pranks,
Away from their shores.
Since the kept doing of this increases not diminishes,
Serious conflicts no one finds adored.

'OH! ?
They use drones to spy?
Let us now use chemicals...
To poison the air and burn their eyes.'

Noticeable it is,
For those kept abreast and conscious of it...
A known point sought when reached,
Has no return to an innocence left.
Or a remembered innocence once left accepted.
And 'this' had been an objective respected to protect.
