Prized And Forbidden - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those who prefer,
Their ignorance corralled.
Limited to a certain space.
As if keeping what they have is prized...
And forbidden.
While those who have expressed intelligence,
Enforce upon them a real threat!

This feast has infested,
With a manifestation of multi-leveled addictions!
Those showing signs of a thought process...
Should be warned to watch their backs.
As well as the amount of nonsense swallowed.
The squinting of eyes IS approved! But, don't shut them!

There are those expounding their beliefs.
And thumping on 'their' Bibles.
As if a keeping of an ignorance represents,
The intention of God's wishes...
That all mankind display depths of stupidity!
With an addition of more contradictions...
In direct conflict with hypocrisies.
