Adaptations - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Adaptations.
Can be closely associated,
To a creative plagiarism.
Leaving the origin,
Often undisclosed to detect.
Or comprehend by anyone to suspect.
What has been discovered to renovate,
Has taken far less time...
To marinate.
In a process that requires thought.
Sleepless nights.
And a headache or two to suffer through.
Yet...
Easily found to tweak,
Is someone's idea shared.
With this to claim and redefine,
By another with their druthers...
In the mood to steal.
As one's own complete original.
Since few would know,
An original from an impression...
Faked to pass the acceptance stage.
