Riddled And Beset - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How can a way of life,
Riddled and beset to upset with constant conflct...
Shown to have a deficit of common sense,
And accompanied by an onslaught of known hypocrisies...
Find anyone to condemn as one not to lead...
A normal and approved existence?

When revealed are those self righteous,
With exposed dysfunctions clearly insight...
Have annointed themselves with the right to demand,
Their standards valued be adopted OR imposed...
Regardless of how crazed and mindless,
Their defenses to uphold such nonsense becomes.
