Must See - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

To keep a people pre-occupied with fear...
Is to have their routines and traditions suspected,
Of being threatened.
Create visions that will keep them awake,
By entertaining their consciouness...
With something that brings them,
To the edge of their seats!
Like those scary movies that allows no sleep.
Hype and tease their peacefulness,
With something that leaves them with no rest at all.
And label what is created as a 'Must See'...
To be witnessed and believed!
With an advertising of it kept marketed,
Done nonstop to keep them reminded!
