Society Needs Relief - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Minds adopting violence as a crop,
That grows.
Exposes those who show,
A hopelessness invested.
With a manifesting,
Gone unarrested.

Minds adopting violence as a crop,
That grows.
And bestowing,
An assessed uselessness.
That has been infested,
Fed and digested.

Society needs relief...
With a sweeping of the weeping.
Too many left on knees and grieving.
Too many say they seek a meaning.

Society needs relief...
With a sweeping of the weeping.
Too many left on knees and grieving.
Too many say they seek a meaning.

Although the answers come,
They can't let go.
Although the answers come,
Their tears still flow.

Minds adopting violence as a crop,
That grows.
And bestowing,
An assessed uselessness.
That has been infested,
Fed and digested.

Society needs relief...
With a sweeping of the weeping.
Too many left on knees and grieving.
Too many say they seek a meaning.

Although the answers come,
They can't let go.
Although the answers come,
Their tears still flow.

Society needs relief.
Society needs relief.
Society needs relief.

Although the answers come,
They can't let go.
Although the answers come,
Their tears still flow.
