No One Left To Victimize - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Feed them trash.
And they will love it.
Overwhelm them with brilliance...
And they will be stunned.
If some are able to do both,
They will be praised.
And those in movements to slander,
Will be amazed their days are done.
There is no one left to victimize.
And their tear swollen eyes hide,
In holes they have dug...
To smother themselves,
In worthless dirt!

    This one tempts me again. I loved it until the end. OOOOOOH! My heart!
    I love your words chosen. Just let me touch them a little.
