Such Activities - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

One day they are going to need,
Updated and refreshened explanations.
With a new set of excuses,
For their misguided deeds.

No one can repeatedly shot themself in the foot,
To hop around in self inflicted sorrow...
And blame others for criticizing their efforts.
Or not showing them support for consistently being,
Redundantly incompetent.
Although STUPID would be an appropriate word to use.

Loyalty begins to wear thin,
When those who follow such activities...
Are made to appear to be the bigger fools.
With the excusing of blatant ignorance,
As an element of routine.
