Ears Are Closed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is one basic problem that sits between them.
They all have been conditioned to believe,
Each one of them were born to lead.

And no one perceives a listening should be done.
Where the foundation,
Of true leadership begins for anyone.

That is why what's going on can not be fixed.
Those involve desire to captain their own ship.
And ears are clearly plugged to be closed

While those of flapping lips persist...
The resolving of their started problems,
Should lay on someone's shoulders.
But not on theirs to take the risk.

'You should be blamed for this! '

No.
You should be blamed for this!

'No.
You should be blamed for this! '

No.
You should be blamed for this!

*EVERYONE SING:

You should be blamed for this,
No.
You should be blamed for this,
No.
You should be,
You should be...
You should be blamed for this!

You should be blamed for this,
No.
You should be blamed for this,
No.
You should be,
You should be...
You should be blamed for this!
