Biases Remain - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A perfect life rehearsed and televised,
Or one depicted subservient in need...
Is not reality.
Although these images are wished,
To reflect what is kept to be believed.

Nor are those seen on movie screens,
Guiding slick spaceships through the Universe...
Creators of Earth or our saviors.
Although those images too are wished,
To reflect an acceptance to believe.

What can be acknowledged,
From performances to comprehend...
Are those who can create weapons to make,
For the purpose to maim and kill for the thrill of it.
And what is known without disputing,
Is their capability to display...
Anguish, pain, and agony on a daily basis.
To claim their destruction is a direct wish,
From a Divine God they keep worshipped.
With 'words' scriptured to hear them quote,
Interpretations of biases remaining to maintain.

And biases remain,
To interpret who is best and qualified as 'chosen'...
To 'reveal' how humanity should end.
