Relying On Bitterness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Their tragedies are noted,
And documented with flair.
They announce themselves war mongers,
Leaders in this game of conquer and despair.
They represent the dwindling few...
Who see life from conflicting starts.
Destroying and remodeling hopes,
To erase ancient histories and 'beef' up their parts!
They carry no remorse as a resource to learn.
For them they rule with material techniques,
The success they count on to control the World...
Like children watching with excitement,
A fire that burns.
Relying on bitterness with nothing at all sweet.
Ensure all of humanity suffers beaten,
Leaving masses to wander in ruin...
On cold city streets!
And we think of this as progress?
Uncontested as it seems.
Demons using a call to cease...
To increase their schemes!
Released to spread a desire for death
Infused to disturb with sickness,
A threat to peaceful unreachable dreams!
