Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
When a mind is shut...
Don't try to pry it open.
It is better where it is decaying,
There is hope with others showing
Signs of response.
Those who are replusive...
Are already dead anyway!
Evidence is overwhelming
Mercy missions have ceased
To those increasingly accepting
Where they are with defeat!
Afraid and avoiding,
To reach for facts!
To support an enriching life!
And they will not experience that.
They've been demoralized!
