Stagnated And Cemented Minds - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People determined to find,
A better quality of life...
Seldom rely on hype.
Or a marketed propaganda.
The attraction of that,
Continues to lose a satisfaction had.

Erected monuments,
And historic documents...
Displayed in museums to visit,
May represent aging pretentions.
But decades to grow into centuries to pass,
Does nothing for those who choose to leave...
Stagnated and cemented minds of all kinds,
Doing their best to relive times that have gone.

People determined to find,
A better quality of life...
Seldom rely on hype.
Or a marketed propaganda.
Since the attraction of that,
Continues to lose a satisfaction had.
And yet there are many,
Still living in environments...
Believing their way of life to maintain,
To remain the same...
Sustains a benefit as destinations.
Even though businesses and others...
With a kept common sense,
Leave to go to places where people aren't afraid...
To live their lives more diversified,
With a welcoming of a future that does not offend.
To be done and connect with it.

'Connecticut? '

No.
I said...'connect with it'.

'Oh.'
