Often Begins In Innocence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I can not and wont argue,
The right or wrongs...
Of an opinion I am requested to give.
Nor will I sit defending in debating it,
If my opinion has been solicited.
But there is one thing I am determined I will do,
And that is not to be baited to offer it again...
To amuse the doings that others choose.
Not if I am familiar,
With those wanting to confuse issues.
Since I've noticed any suggestion,
With an opinion requested to give...
Often begins in innocence.
To then offend those who wish that opinion,
Was to them given with a lesser truthfulness.
