Lawrence S. Pertillar
With A Hint Of Audacious Pretense
I find it hysterical.
And with a hint of audacious pretense,
That those with a dare...
To depict themselves as legends,
Sat on fences as those who truly pioneered...
Removed obstacles from paths before they were paved.
To ensure a safe passage to allow those too afraid,
For what may appear to now have those paths cleared.
And they call themselves legends?
Those who will never experience,
What it takes to have backbone and journey alone.
But people like this creating their own myths,
Stay satisfied deceiving with lies...
In the hope that truth can be kept disguised.
Or a masquerading to charade a comfort to embellish,
Keeps those who research the actual facts...
Laughing at a lack of an absence of their integrity.
