Under The Surface Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar


As face value?
Nothing is what it is meant to be.
And a probing is distanced intentionally.

Under the surface?
There is much more going on,
Than anyone would believe.

And perhaps that is why...
Delusions are encouraged to remain,
Kept at the maximum of distractions.
