Kept It Wanted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is not so much what is represented.
It is how it is presented.
With many wishing less of it,
That has been consented.
By those who have chosen to accept,
There is nothing better for them to get.
Yet...
Could if they would,
Just kept it wanted.
And in these tumultuous days?
That to want is much more of a need!
