Humiliation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Humiliation and the performance of it,
Is an intention meant to be understood.
Only those pretentious,
Offended to then defend against it...
Are the very ones to allow this done,
As long as they did not personally become...
Intimidated, humiliated, disgraced and disrespected.
In a way they have shown to make known,
They can do better than anyone else.
With this done to perform upon themselves.
But upset folks like this get,
When they are the victims picked.
To then act as if,
Shocked.
Appalled.
And embarrassed by images,
They have condoned to approve.
Even at the sake,
Of having their identities replaced.
With a joining in with the laughter,
At someone they know.
Just to demean if this should mean,
That laughter proves...
They too can be fools for the attention to get.
Regardless of who it is...
A relative, friend or business associate.
Humiliation is nothing new to do,
Especially in times when disrespecting...
Has been allowed to expect and accept.
