Historic Contributions Made - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Attempts to diminish historic contributions made,
To ignore the significance of them.
Or refuse to grant acknowledgement,
To the ones who influenced their implementation.
Is not an oversight.
People take for granted the ease of their lives.

And undoubtedly the lack of attention given,
Can be attributed to those who wish...
The ones who made strides are forgotten.
To never mention their historic significance.

Especially the ones who could care less,
Who made sacrifices that are addressed...
To have enabled them to dance,
Clothed or undressed...
Up and down paved roads doing as they please,
With no hint of appearing obstacles.
