Easier It Had Been - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

So much easier it had been,
From some to make others appear...
As if they were the fools.
Than it is for those very same people,
To prove the have not been,
The ones tricked and fooled.
Duped and choosing to be.
With this done these days to have believed,
Deception is not always,
Self inflicted to notice it.
Yet often defended to protect.
