Special Needs - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has happened too frequently,
With it done to often...
That those who have shown,
To be thoughtless but later regret...
A neglect to openly in debate express,
That people living in their own communities...
In sight and not disguised,
Have special needs,
That have long been ignored.

Although condoned to permit.
But refuse to admit with pretentiousness,
Their own mentalities are in dire need...
Of an attention to be focused on them,
With an expediting done immediately...
To achieve a reality most refuse does exist.
Yet those who sit with their delusions intact,
Will not accept...
The doing of that which they have created.

'It has occurred to us,
Those of us not before made aware...
That there are hundreds living,
Right here in our community...
Suffering with 'special needs'.
And we have hired outside investigators,
To uncover with proof...
How such an isolated event,
Could be allowed to happen...
When all of us pride ourselves,
With a finding of appropriate solutions...
To resolve our problems,
The moment they are identified.'
