Side Affects - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is amaziing how one lie lived,
Can become the basis...
Of a faith based foundation,
Many will argue...
Has no benefit felt deeply within them.

To then have it said,
Principles of deceit...
Are studied and practiced,
With devoted longevity!

Beliefs kept and held begin to fall apart.
And trith of one's origin,
Is discarded and treated like molded meat.
To be buried.
Just as effectively as the creation of diseases.
To promote health industries.
With cures promised all will see,

Only the people follow the advice authorized,
As issued...
Those self help remedies seen as broadcasted,
On their wide screen TV's.
With side affects scrolling by...
Faster than a bolt of lightening.
