In The Minds Of Those Judgemental - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
What sense does it make,
To label people fools, mavericks and idiots...
Accuse them of being insensitive?
With a declaring of those depicted this way,
And chosen to isolate with a shunning done...
Of having no empathy to unite,
With those who now face dilemmas.
Those they had chosen to character assassinate,
Had warned them they would one day face...
A crisis that would open their tunneled vision eyes.
Could this pendulum that now swings,
From those labelled as misfits and 'freaks'...
Be swinging closer to the ones,
Who now see their beliefs threatened...
As that time now to them comes,
By realities they had opposed.
But now so afraid they seek not to be exposed.
Who knows what is in the minds of those,
Signs of mental instabilities,
Need not to flash with neon lights.
'Do you plan to join those who are protesting? '
I plan to have a cup of coffee with cream and sugar.
And apply my Senior discount.
And add two 'Old Fashion' donuts.
How much do I owe you? ~
