Much More Of A Threat - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The tolerance of a condoned ignorance,
And the continued marketing of it...
To solicit with such acceptance,
Poses much more of a threat...
To those fearing who is or is not mentally stable,
To purchase and use a weapon to kill someone.
With a doing intentionally or unintentionally done,
Based upon suspicious looks, hoods worn...
Or manner of speech that conflicts with religious beliefs,
Interpreted from books and their discrepancies.
If ignorance was not an aspect accepted,
And embraced to validate insecurties kept...
To become as effective as it has...
As if a task to pass to ride on backsides,
A society claiming to be progressive...
Would not adapt to ignorance to protect itself,
From fears it has created, to bait and entertain.
And then to place blame upon those shamed,
Who have chosen to oppose their standards valued.
