Breached - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Who is left to decide,
How a normal mind is depicted?
And who is it that would advocate war,
To then say interests on different shores...
Belong to those who chose to inflict conflict.
And this mental addiction to such illness,
Is currently being defended by those with beliefs...
They are entitled with rights,
Threatened to be breached...
If a seeking to update or delete a 2nd Amendment,
Interpreted for times long gone and obsolete?

And yet protecting the rights,
Of those dropped on the streets day and night...
Are not prioritized with the same attention given.

Who is left to decide,
How a normal mind is depicted?
When violations persist with commitment.

And who is it that would advocate war,
To then say interests on different shores...
Belong to those who chose to inflict conflict?

What definition of 'normalcy' is this?
When those wishing to purchase weapons,
For the purpose to protect their 'sanities'...
Have loose ends and with 'hypocrisies' fit.
If...
Their values and standards kept,
Have implemented the reasons why...
Human lives everywhere have been observed,
Disrespected to have their lives infested...
By delusions of peace sickened and diseased.

Who is left to decide,
How a normal mind is depicted?
Where is this myth practiced...
When misfits sick are on the rise!
And who are they to benefit from not being crazed?
Without a hiding to defend and protect their dysfunctions,
From those still determining who amongst them is nuts!
