A Fleeing To Do To Leave - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

They come in droves to protest any plans,
To have dumping sites for garbage...
Half way houses or rehabilitation centers,
Constructed near or where they live.
And they have taken strong measures,
To ensure this 'outrageousness'...
Done to affect their wholesomeness,
Will not to them be permitted.

They prefer these sites built,
In areas already over crowded...
And inhabited by the ones depressed.
Surpressed by the implementation,
Of the protestors distressing policies.

Even though those protesting in droves,
Are the creators of the trash...
But rather not see!
Although a fleeing to do to leave,
Quickly is a priority.
As a critiquing done to pass judgement continues...
The upholding of their self righteousness.
And advocated by a sympathizing media coverage.
