For Empty Benefits - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
No time these days,
Should any heart explore envy.
An encouragement that nourishes...
Brings closer to home,
A satisfaction kept.
It is much too easy today,
To criticize someone else.
With no empathy involved,
And to cast problems off
For others to solve.
Too many immoralistic drifters,
Leech on and preach to others...
For empty benefits,
With desires that make no sense.
And this some do for fun.
For shallow reasons done.
Many who are 'sick' just joke.
No matter who is left in pain!
Regardless whose tears may fall.
Or who is near just to provoke!
