Road Bumps - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Only those who keep their minds closed...
Feel penalized.
Only those who keep their minds closed,
Get bowled over.
With big chips on their shoulders.

Some are quick to disbelieve their visions,
With it done.
Some are quick to listen to,
Deceivers in their ears.

Some are quick to disbelieve their visions,
With it done.
Some are quick to listen to,
What they've heard to hear.

People stumble over road bumps,
After warnings.
People stumble over road bumps.

People stumble over road bumps,
After warnings.
People stumble over road bumps.

Jaws tight.
Day and night.
Disbelieving what is right.
People stumble over road bumps.

Only those who keep their minds closed...
Feel penalized.
People stumble over road bumps.
Only those who keep their minds closed,
Get bowled over.
With big chips on bent shoulders.

Jaws tight.
Day and night.
Disbelieving those right.

Some are quick to disbelieve their visions,
With it done.
Some are quick to listen to,
Deceivers in their ears.

People stumble over road bumps,
After warnings.
People stumble over road bumps.

People stumble over road bumps.
To try to hide it.
People stumble over road bumps.
To lie.
People stumble over road bumps.
And keep denying,
They have stumbled over road bumps.
