Others Who Expostulate Demonstrate A Stance

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some people fix their minds on those,
Chosen to persuade.
With a doing to convince,
Killing truth is common sense.

And others who expostulate,
Demonstrate a stance.
Hoping that a remonstrating,
Proves that they can dance...
Around a bush,
To silence honesty...
Without giving it a chance.

Easily manipulated with lies to persuade...
Today some people twist,
A truth they can't admit.

Easily manipulated with lies to persuade...
There are people wishing,
A truth will go away.
There are people wanting more,
A truth all will betray.
