No Progress - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why is it,
When people do not listen.
And continue to argue.
About wanting to have it their way.
To do done with it to ignore.
What others suggest or say.
Or take into consideration.
Their contribution to make.
That may be to all a benefit.
Enhancing what is done.
For everyone to appreciate.
Then later have it heard.
Loudly to hear and clearly.
About a need for unity.
Since without it,
No progress is possible.
And steps moving forward,
Can be expected to be delayed.
