Liked For Their Pleasant Smiles - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one is sure,
Who qualifies for what.
OR who has true expertise,
Since nepotism has been the way...
And incompetence known,
To effectively touch...
All aspects of their degraded lives.
As a sliding into a ravine,
Has been seen as the best choice to make.
By those with doctored credentials.
Liked for their pleasant smiles,
And accessible during social community events.
Endured and endorsed,
With a glad handing madness.
Accompanied by a sadness cheered.
