Something Dismissed Should Be Retrieved - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those wants and wishes have materialized,
Right before their eyes.
And that which has been stated not wished,
Appears with no disguise.

And arguments heard occur to travel...
Faster than a speeding bullet,
Shot from an opened mouth.
With a twisting of facts...
From there to an ear for all to hear.
Whispered behind most backs.

What consciousness is this?
When complaints like this exist.
Those wants and wishes have materialized.
Why is it they now resist.

Something dismissed should be retrieved.
Yet what has been dismissed,
Has allowed those wants and wishes...
To appear!
But not wanted.
And now claimed...
Not wished.
