Invalidated Accusations - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

On multiple levels,
A picking apart of falsehoods takes place.
And on multiple levels,
The disgrace of this can not be erased.
On multiple levels,
An aged tolerance of it is being exposed.
And on multiple levels,
Those responsible and should be held accountable...
Have chosen to refuse truth by making the same excuses.

'Had we known to comprehend these deficiences existed,
As claimed by those disgruntled...
And confronting us with comments we find verbally offensive,
None of these horrendous activities many today say they face...
Would have been permitted to happen to take place.
IF, indeed, they had occurred as they perceive.'

~Even though you chose to close your eyes,
Turn your backs to walk away and with turn up your noses?
This is the ultimate of despicable desceit.~

'We consider that as jibberish and speculation.
Although well stated,
We regard as invalidated accusations.
We have 'never' turned up our noses.
Once the facts have been revealed and thoroughly debated,
We re-act accordingly.'

~To benefit the delusions of whom? ~

'It has been reported but not yet confirmed,
That we are in the midst of a deliberate crisis.
This we do understand.
I ask of you,
Does it really matter, at this point, who or whom is at fault,
To lay blame? '

~We are here to take effective measures to ensure none of this,
Ever happens again.
The public has entrusted us to deliver to them some answers.~

Are you through with your probe?
We have scheduled a luncheon date.
And this nonsense has already created a delay.'
