Contentions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

By their own inhabitions.
Seeking approval,
That would never come!
So for fun and Earthly pleasures done,
Self destruction begun...
As planned from the planting.
Contentions spent in doubt,
As irrelevent pretentions
Wiped them out!
And attempts to save them were declined.
Since they sought to define themselves,
With no time left to borrow!
Debating arguments,
Stalled their collective purpose and intent!
And they lost to ineffectiveness.
With any worthiness not missed at all!
