Steps Are Then Taken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People will 'always',
Subject themselves to be convinced...
That a truth outspoken,
Should somehow offend.
As defense mechanisms are created to prevent them.

And steps are then taken,
To censor that which is deemed improper.
Only to have a preferred decadence,
Accepted without doubt to be adopted and not stopped!
As a clinging on for decades of known lies are allowed.
