High On The List - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why isn't accountability,
High on the list.
Why isn't responsibility,
High on the list.
And,
How come denials done...
At the top of that list,
With...
Excuses made,
Along
With
It.

Why isn't integrity,
High on the list.
Or...
A dignity believed,
High on the list.
And,
Why is it that good things done
No where to exist.
While those vicious and the envious...
Dance and do high kicks.

Why isn't accountability,
High on the list.
Why isn't responsibility,
High on the list.
And,
Why is it that good things done
No where to exist...
While those vicious and the envious,
Dance and do high kicks.

Why are denials done...
At the top of that list,
With...
Excuses made,
Along
With
It.

And,
Why is it that good things done
No where to exist...
While those vicious and the envious,
Dance and do high kicks.
