A Purpose That Remains Effective - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Solutions and delusions both,
Have a common connection...
To the existence of a reality resisted.

All three appear to be totally distanced,
From anything decided to be concrete.
And the ones who claim they know what it takes,
To eliminate today's confusion...
Are said to have answers to bring relief.

Although...
It could be debated,
That those deluded have found a solution...
To permanently confuse reality for all.
And with a purpose that remains effective,
Few can honestly say a success has not been achieved.
