Unfulfilled Promises


A retreat is considered by many defeat,
Especially...
By those who poster with pretense,
Of something had...
But,
Delusion and reality just don't mix.
However...
The creating of delusions has been a hit.

Amendments and laws invented to circumvent,
Can not prevent...
The righting of those wrongs,
To get everyone to get along....
Because,
Feeding on delusions has had,
Many addicted to unfulfilled promises.
And those who protest want those promises met.

And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
