Here We Go, Again - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Minds reset on negative investments,
Should not, but do...
Expect positive returns.

'Here we go, again.'

Today people gather in protest,
Against a neglected environment...
They alone have left seeded to harvest.
With a weeding done that has manifested.
To observe a slow growth of it,
And allowed themselves to follow...
Until claims that are blamed on others,
Are relayed to have made them become upset.
By choices they've selected,
That has caused a detected effectiveness.

'Here we go, AGAIN.'
Yes!
Here we go,
Yet again...
In full amazing displayed pretentiousness.

Prevailing on tall tales to us told, .
And holding onto the hope that delusions sold...
Will keep the truth that exists,
Kept denied and resisted.

'Here we go, AGAIN.'

Yes!
Here we go,
Yet again...
In full amazing displayed pretentiousness.
Selling to solicit more protests,
That seeks to unify those deceptions accepted...
With others who no longer try,
To keep their eyes and minds closed.

'Here we go, AGAIN.'

Yes!
Here we go,
AGAIN.

Yet again...
In full amazing displayed pretentiousness.
A pretentiousness that repeats,
A reality refused by many to see...
Their denials to keep as an entitlement,
Do not dry eyes preferring to stay sleeping.
Or restore delusions,
The reality of truth continues to sweep away.
