Defied Definition - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Who and 'what' is he trying to be?
Without our consent...
Or showing such actions,
Not approved or allowed?

Who has cleared his path of obstacles...
When we had planned to upset him.
To see him in public with his head lowered.
At least expectedly bowed.

He has defied definition.
And confused our sterotypes.
We thought he'd be a joke by now.
But a laughter anticipated...
Has left us vocalizing gripes.

Who has cleared his path of obstacles...
When we had planned to upset him.
To see him in public with his head lowered.
At least expectedly bowed.

Who and 'what' is he trying to be?
Without our consent...
Or showing such actions,
Not approved or allowed?

He has defied definition.
And confused our sterotypes.
We thought he'd be a joke by now.
Not leave us to experience sleepless nights.
