More Chances

We are not living in times,
With more chances...
To get them given.
These are times to shake,
And awaken...
Our delusions.
Overdosed to break away,
From an habitual addiction.
No one claim,
Has been beneficial.

Warnings to ignore,
Signs and messages...
Delivered to every door.
Regardless where that door is.
Can not these days,
Accept denial or excuses...
To be made.
When before our eyes,
To believe them to lie or not...
Has come to visit,
An horrific pandemic that sits.
Caring less who chooses,
To focus upon...
A returning of a 'normalcy'.
More wished to have,
Than had existed.

What normalcy is it,
That makes truth to face...
Out of place and offensive?

Which fools,
Living on either side...
Of the tracks.
Would assume that way of life,
Keeps many sleepless.
Praying that kind of normalcy,
Is a priority to wish to get...
As it had been to want back? !
Done to have who they are,
Their religious beliefs.
Or their very appearance,
Profiled and attacked.

We are not living in times,
With more chances...
To get them given.
For an opportunity to redo,
What had been done repeat.

And for the ones,
Insisting with persistence.
They are entitled,
To do as they please.
Will eventually discover,
Lessons to learn them...
Refusing to do.
These times we live today,
Is no place for fools...
To believe their decisions,
Are permitted to approve...
Who amongst us can prove,
Themselves to be...
Chosen to represent stupidity!
That ain't happenin'.
