Frantic - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some believe redundancy,
Makes a point that sticks.
While others are getting sick of repeatedness...
And they've decided not to listen,
To any of it!

Shifting from fear to panic driven fits...
Frantic describes it all!
Hopefully an appointed committee will agree,
An overhaul is needed...
For assigned wakeup calls!

And everyone appearing at the meeting will be clear,
As to how they arrived...
At one place with opened eyes,
And who should be the one they perceive,
To be annointed to take the blame
For instigating something that works,
Finally!
Once and...for all!
