Caught To Cage - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You should not expect,
To see my name blazened in lights.
I am not that kind of writer.
I do not sweeten what I say,
To appease those kinds of appetites to sway...
My way.
Too long have I paced my own footsteps alone.

My sights are on truths and not delusions.
I prefer to see what I observe as being what it is.
And if it isn't as it should be from my own experiences,
Well...
I refuse to debate over definitions.
Especially those changing in mid-conversation.

And those who find excuses to make,
For things they do to blame others...
To establish their own escapes,
Are spineless creatures no one should trust.
Unless, of course...
They have been caught to cage!
To then be viewed in a zoo.
