A Commonplace Activity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has become a commonplace activity,
To denounced as if to censor...
Those who pronounce a truth to announce.
Although a doing of it with little resistance,
Will not prevent the evidence of truth...
Regardless who chooses to have it reduced,
To produce hypnotic and more seducing...
Foolishness to delude those removed from reality.
