Remnants Of Sanity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Between fiscal cliffs and threatening flus.
Self righteous, religious lip givers,
And morally corrupted fanatics...
Expressing a forgiveness wished from pulpits.
To continue giving their hypocritical points of view.

Lieing politicians,
Representing their lieing constituents.
Foreclosed homes and joblessness...
Repossessed lives once valued as a standard.
And crazed gun toters,
Psychologists and newscasters...
Are attempting to convince,
These events have nothing to do with a society...
Slowly being flushed down the tubes.

Those holding close to their chests,
To protect remnants of sanity they keep treasured...
To possess as if obsessed,
Should not interpret any of these visual depictions,
Seen to observe...
As an unleashed madness revealed to be condoned.
This is not the case.

What is wished that everyone perceives,
To acknowledge just the few who happen to be,
Mass murderers, crooks, deceivers and cheats...
As a small representation of those who choose to vent,
And destroy the lives of others...
Because they had awakened one day to make wrong decisions.
And the over 300 million guns and other weapons people possess,
Are kept to protect their freedoms 'whenever' that need should arise.

I am so glad that was clearly explained.
I feel so relieved now.

Perhaps those people who do these awful things,
Should be taught much earlier in their lives...
They have been naughty. And...with a firmness,
Asked to leave the dinner table 'without' getting dessert.
And sent to sit alone in their bedrooms.
That will send to them the appropriate message.'
