Solicitation Of Empathy - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who remind others,
Who does what to them and when...
Are just as wicked as those they claim,
Cause them pain.
Or miseries no one sees a doer of such deeds,
With perhaps much more embellishment.
And a solicitation of empathy to gain.
Finding it not so easy to inflict upon a 'picked' culprit,
What one wishes to have done and sustain.
An overacting of facts is what remains.
