Rapid Renvovation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are people who have adapted,
To false identities that have them entrapped...
Have expectations of acceptance,
In other environments...
Without facing the challenge of change.

And remain deluded they do,
With beliefs their laundry to hang and expose...
Should be tolerated as it is in the 'hood',
Where folks are accustomed...
To openly degrade themselves.
In displays of indignities daily to show...
Should know some places are not prepared,
For that kind of rapid renovation.
