Desperate Measures - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Desperate measures taken to create motives,
For purposes to explain an absence of discipline...
And a lack of accountability nowhere that remains,
Is a waste of desperate measures taken...
When truth is exposed with it shown to see,
Those spending time creating motives...
Are less motivated with incentive.
And more inspired by inventive imaginations.
Left to leave reality and facts to believe inactive.
With their focus on motives without substance shown.

'I understand what you are saying.
And I have been aware of your motives.
But what is it 'really' that you wish me to believe?
If it's deception I need not to be convinced.
You have more than achieved my expectations.'
