Damaging Tongues - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Pursuing as has been done...
A delight they have taken in destruction.
Those walking on darkened paths...
Character assassinating to undo someone,
With their damaging tongues...
Are the very same ones responsible,
For all that which has to everyone come.
Direct or indirectly.

Label the facts of this as something existing,
As a myth driven by a negativity if you wish.
The proof has been in the pudding.
And has been dished relentlessly and imposed,
By those with nothing but jealousy and intent to circumvent.
As their comments are mentioned through their sickened lips.
And within distance or not...
It isn't easy for one conscious to dismiss the effects of this.
