Alibis Negotiated - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who can see,
Will.
And those who refuse to,
Will always ask...
What purpose does it serve.
And what the reason for it means.

Too many upset march in protest,
To attest against a manifestation created.
With excuses made to escape participation.
In a doing to initiate alibis negotiated,
Leaving others debating too late...
Outdated methods decaying their fates.

Too many had been given tools to use.
To get from step one to advance to two.
As voices raise to argue over pay.
Before training and without proving,
What it is they could do.

Too many had been given positions to lead.
With a doing to teach others how to succeed.
But some lacking discipline to pay attention,
Could not comprehend a success that is wished...
Requires tasks to complete without their nonsense,
Kept to keep them sitting and not on their feet.

Too many had been given tools to use.
To get from step one to advance to two.
As voices raise to argue over pay.
Before training and without proving,
What it is they could do.

Too many upset march in protest,
To attest against a manifestation created.
With excuses made to escape participation.
In a doing to initiate alibis negotiated,
Leaving others debating too late...
Outdated methods decaying their fates.

Those who can see,
Will.
And those who refuse to,
Will always ask...
What purpose does it serve.
And what the reason for it means.
