Caught Up In A Display Of Pomp - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those caught up in a display of pomp,
Are not aware of the circumstances...
One day they must repay,
While foundations they depend...
Begin to crumble unnoticed under them.
Someone has to be held accountable,
For the merriment enjoyed...
Without employing common sense.
Someone unafraid to say what may offend,
Has to walk away to seek the doing of deeds...
To leave the younger generation impressed,
That 'someone' sought to be responsible enough...
To encourage them that feasting is a part of life!
And preparing to sacrifice is not what they should avoid.
