A shown progress made,
Takes commitment to truth.
No truth. No progress.
Just efforts to endeavor,
Excessive defeat.
A continuation,
Of a wasted expense paid.
Kept worshipped as a way...
To get attention then declare,
And accuse...
Those who speak truth,
Are negative when they begin...
Pointing out failed activities,
With a lack of their shown...
Positive support.
And communal unity.
Perceived to be taking,
Effective steps forward...
By charading an honesty,
Portrayed while imitating it.
Fearing reality...
And its full disclosure,
Will diminish their right...
To remain judgemental,
Insecure and pretentious.
For many...
This to masquerade,
Is success and progress made.
