Idealistically Detached - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Holding those accountable,
For public speeches made...
Idealistically detached from that,
Which is actually lived as fact...
By those scratching their heads,
Trying to reveal for themselves a relevance...
A routine of a message given,
By politicians witnessed...
No one notices a life of reality...
Those who ball their fists and listening,
While gritting their teeth...
Live on a day to day basis.
There may be some amongst you...
Disgruntled and negative.
But I tell you this...
A prosperity for all,
Is as close as my manicured fingertips.
This I am certain of, notice...and can feel.
And just the other day,
While cruising in the Mediterranean...
I was overcomed by feelings of joy and peace.'
