Contributor To Your Disgust - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tell the truth.
And be honest with yourself.
If I had not been a contributor,
To your disgust...
Would you have had any other ambitions,
To hate for no reason?
And with such a lustful intensity.

Would you be motivated to continue living?
What kind of life could you possibly have?
Think about it.
Without me proving you with an incentive,
That inspires...
You and I both know,
Life to you would be absolutely meaningless.
