Dipping In The Waters - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Why have you become less outwardly vocal these days?
'You try maneuvering through a bunch of spineless jellyfish,
With stingers that quietly sting when commanded.
And enjoy calling themselves teamplayers,
To advance social agendas.'
I wondered why I hadn't seen you,
Dipping in the waters.
'I'm seeking to swim were I know it is less poisonous.'
Many areas have become contaminated,
With the training of sharks that smile before they bite.
Just to get the attention for doing it.
Regardless of who it is that gets bittened.
No loyalty from them does 'anyone' get.
