No Time Is Right - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No time is right,
To initiate a wrong cause.
With it mentioned to represent,
The doings of others not involved.
But told they had been present,
By attempts made to convince...
Those listening of events,
That neither happened to have occurred.
But continuing on are details depicted.
From one loving the attention to get.
Whenever the opportunity arrives,
To spread more lies...
Devoted to fiction with their conviction.
And believed.
But not by the ones,
Having their characters assassinated.
With the ease of reputations ruined.
