Further Away Is The Truth From Them Kept Distanced

For every moment an episode of delusion is presented,
To influence a fertile and innocent mind...
Further away is the truth from them kept distanced.
And easier it becomes to admonish those,
Who still have memories of what it was to be honest.

As honesty, integrity and the speaking with truth,
Becomes for many an unaccepted process of life!
To then offend those overhearing the truth spoken,
Publicly to totally disregard the ones who believe...
Deceiving to lie to another is the only reason one lives.

'What are you doing.
Why are you in such a panic? '

~I'm calling 911.
I will not continue to listen to that nonsense.
I want to ensure my entitlements are left protected.~

'Ignore them.'

~Like the others have continued to do?
Do you see what is happening to our kept delusions?
I'm not going to have mine destroyed like that.
Someone has to stand up for our rights,
And standards that should be kept valued.

I'd like to report language I find unacceptable.
In fact...
I am outraged 'these' people have not been arrested,
For their obscene and insolent behavior.~
