Drenched In Defense - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Drenched in defense,
And...
Tossing about,
Rumors of a doom.
To then be talking about,
What is heard without a fact.
And people re-act,
To every stranger that they see...
As someone who has evil deeds,
Because of their ethnicity.

Today...
People are made to be afraid.
Today...
Fear is marketed as if,
Everyone is threatened.
And should have on them weapons.
Today...
No one is immuned,
From being one assumed...
To be the cause and reason,
Why there's craziness.
And yes today...
No one can be happy...
Unless they are on crack.
Or something to compare to that,
To take them off a list...
Declaring them suspicious.

Today...
People are made to be afraid.
Today...
Fear is marketed as if,
Everyone is threatened.
And should have on them weapons.

Drenched in defense,
And...
Giving up the use of common sense.
We're drenched in defense,
And...
Making this mindset permanent.

Today...
People are made to be afraid.
Today...
Everybody pays,
To be drenched in defense,
And...
Giving up the use of common sense.
We're drenched in defense,
And...
Making this mindset permanent.
We're drenched in defense.
And...
Tossing about rumors of doom.
To feed upon it and consume.

Drenched in defense.
That will not prevent a mental illness.
Drenched in defense.
And consenting to this epidemic.

Drenched in defense.
That will not prevent a mental illness.
Drenched in defense.
And consenting to this epidemic.

Drenched in defense.
That will not prevent a mental illness.
Drenched in defense.
And consenting to this epidemic.

Drenched in defense.
That will not prevent a mental illness.
Drenched in defense.
And consenting to this epidemic.

Drenched in defense.
And we all got it.
This epidemic.
Drenched in defense.
Who now can doubt it.
