Deceptive Vanity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am sure nothing that they did,
Could be said was done in vain.
It can be said...
The deceptive vanity of others,
Who placed them in that position...
With interests unknown,
Are the ones to direct your venom.
If their ever changing masquerades,
Could identify their greed...
As having a lack of sensitivity.
And that's going to be very difficult to prove.
Since greed is what has been valued.
