Phased Out At Chapter Two - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A giving to extremes,
Overplayed to plead one's faked case...
Fades to phase out.

Mouths to open not to hear.
With a listening done to make things clear,
Has been what understanding to comprehend is.

North, East, West and South.
More mouths are closing to find that out.

Wishing to bait tastes,
By cooking up saurekraut...
To hook fresh fish,
Of a different language to dish...
With a sudden change of a menu,
To offer them something new...
Does not camouflage,
The deceiving done you do.

Save your sobbing tears,
Once to flow like a river.
To dry rapidly into a draught.
Phased out at chapter two,
From that book that has been read...
To know what you are all about.
A giving to extremes,
Overplayed to plead one's faked case...
Has faded to phase out.
With a patience gone to no longer tolerate,
Dramatics to emphasis the selling of stale skills.

North, East, West and South.
And on highways, byways and crooked streets,
More mouths are closing to find that out...
With a wanting to overhaul their old beliefs,
By a listening to comprehend...
Before interrupting to ask pointless questions.
