Where Are The Minds Of The People - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Where are the minds of the people,
Infected to manifest...
Negatve investments to get upset.

Where are the minds of the people,
Deluded...
With this pursued,
While attacking with bad attitudes...
Those who speak truth.

Where are the minds of the people,
Degraded but unphased...
To see relationships split,
Or witness them decay.

Where are the minds of the people,
Stuck like glue to 'things' they've got.
With a doing to impress when they should stop.

Where are the minds of the people,
Disrespecting...
And everyday,
Yet a togetherness with unity has been chased away.

Where are the minds of the people,
Caught in lies...
But depend they do on overused alibis.

Where are the minds of the people,
Fed on nonsense...
And convinced long lasting benefits,
Will leave them contented...
With a doing meant.

Where are the minds of the people,
With their sufferings shown.
Where are the minds of the people,
With their pities well known.

Where are the minds of the people,
Stuck like glue to 'things' they've got.
With a doing to impress when they should stop.

Where are the minds of the people,
With their sufferings shown.
Where are the minds of the people,
With their pities well known.

Where are the minds of the people,
With their sufferings shown.
Where are the minds of the people,
With their pities well known.

Where are the minds of the people,
Deluded...
With this pursued,
While attacking with bad attitudes...
Those who speak truth.

Where are the minds of the people,
With their sufferings shown.
Where are the minds of the people,
With their pities well known.
