Put 'That' In Your Basket - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

My beliefs that are 'my' beliefs,
Should not infringe upon those of yours.
However...
If my beliefs are more popularly received,
Well...
I will prevail,
Even if thrown in jail.
Just to have it shown on national TV.

'But 'why' is that process necessary? '

'Cause,
MY beliefs are real ones.
And yours?
Are not accepted around here.

'And, that's discrimination! '

And...
Your point to make,
Is what?
What we do is what we choose.
And has nothing to do with you.
This is about me. Us.
And our tight knit judgemental community.
So put 'that' in your basket.
With a taking your task somewhere else.
