Reasons For Its Importance - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If people were as honest as they claim to be,
Hypocrisy wouldn't exist as such a challenge...
To deny or attempt to hide an acknowledgement,
Of its existence.

But since hypocrisy has become affixed to life,
As a convenience more reliable than deception...
To admit the doing of it is an unnecessary process.
And a waste of time trying to find reasons for its importance.
