Hoping Someone Is Convinced - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If anyone follows another,
To the edge of a cliff...
And claim not to know it?
Either has done it prepared,
With a parachute strapped their back.
Or stands hoping someone is convinced,
They visit from a different neighborhood.
And thought they were touring to uncover,
An assortment of aspects others sought...
To revitalize the area.

    At last I am convinced. Lawrence. As long as their parachutes work, they are safe. (Report) Reply
