Escalation Of An Infestation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Escalation of an infestation...
Gone unaddressed.
And producing heartbreak,
For those who now confess...
They wish they had not rejected,
For purposes to correct,
What was 'then' a mess.
Chosing denial...
Instead of facing truths
About themselves.
Not realizing only the truth is best!
But today their suffering,
And association with distress...
Leaves those who cared,
Caring a whole lot less!

'Hey...
Don't look at us!
We were the ones,
They ignored and cussed! '
