Fearing Fear - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Fearing fear to fear it done,
Has become a welcomed expectation.
And with it produced to be identified,
Has everyone anticipating it.
As if to remain fearless today,
Will bring upon immediate suspicion...
By those pre-conditioned,
To seek and create their own threats.
'Why do you look disappointed? '
~I just left a conference on fear.
And not one time did I feel threatened.
All they showed were pictures of those,
Wearing 'hoodies', turbans...
And Jeeps driving behind camels,
Kicking up dirt somewhere in a desert.~
'And 'this' disappoints you? '
~Of course it does.
I paid to leave feeling threatened.
And not one video did they show,
Of anyone wearing a suit and tie...
Smiling wide, carrying a briefcase,
Coming out of an office building.~
