Hummers And Knee Benders - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Indignities done to others,
As a custom.
With a dignified indifference,
Returns to them to receive,
An unexpected loss of a felt empathy.
Shown by those,
Healing from political correctness.
Once having an abundance of empathy to give.
Done without question to the ones expecting,
At least some to come to get...
From their favorite backs to stand on and crack.
With identities taken and their minds snatched.
To always be counted upon as easy forgivers,
Cheek turners, hymn hummers and knee benders.
But an awakening from that,
Has miraculously occurred to restore their pride.
