Presented As A Defense - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Today excuse making,
Is presented as a defense.
And depending upon,
Who best uses denial...
Determines who will get,
More of the attention,
To be allowed to abuse...
The fading away of common sense.

And any attempts made,
To acknowledge the presence of truth...
With facts delivered and them produced,
An empathy is given to be done and quick...
To the one refusing honesty to admit.
With this to be accepted,
Regardless of the crime one commits.
Or the evidence of it to be questioned.
