Popularity Based Upon Testimony Received - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Dangerous are the ones,
Uncomfortable in their own skins.
Easily influenced and absent of identity.
Personally untrustworthy.
Yet dutiful when given and assigned responsibility.

And programmed they are,
To achieve a popularity.
Based upon testimony received...
From those who are equally trained to deceive.

And that is reflective to the health of one's society.
Accepted to observe without comment if wished.
Or deny in one's defense which is commonly witnessed,
To make for them a conscious sense...
To what they do that's done.
For their own betterment and social standing perceived.
