Investigated And Confirmed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What is known has been admitted.
Investigated and confirmed.
Why is it there is no conviction,
Of those sitting in positions...
For their criminal acts.
Or their obvious misdeeds omitted,
From your final judgement to have passed.

"The evidence has been collected.
And this task you have asked,
As expected is complete from our point of view.
What is it that you wish us to do?
Pretend the system is not corrupted?
Pretend injustices are a shock?
Stop people from electing,
Incompetent leaders to represent their beliefs?
Then pretend we seek to uphold,
The highest of values and standards.
When those standards have not been in existence.
Ignored for decades.
Put to sleep and deceased.
What do you expect us to do?
End your delusions?
Or announce Mickey Mouse,
As the real culprit behind...
All the division, confusion and social chaos.
Would you have had that preferred to accept?
Or a reality of the facts,
To reject as is the custom to expect that.
We have done,
What we have said we would do.
And that is to keep your delusions intact.
Anything other than that,
Would take a re-writing of the Constitution.
All history books.
And...
The Bible!
