Such Doings Can Be Tempting - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Such doings can be tempting,
For one torn between participating...
In a demon's misdeeds.
To feel a seeking to get revenge,
Will leave one pleased and at ease.
But ultimately left to be accused,
Of starting a conflict.,
One initially sought to diffuse.
Leave alone one should do,
Those known to lie.
And deceive successfully too!
Use truth as a weapon.
More effective against demons.
Use truth to haunt them mentally.
And patiently with faith and tolerance,
Will fade away from the scene.
'What a coincidence seeing you here.
I heard what you said.
By others who told me what you did.
What are you going to do,
To stop those rumors about you? '
I don't know.
It's been a while since I stripped butt naked.
To then run screaming through the streets.
I'm glad you're here.
Why don't you do that with me? ~
Don't you want to know,
Who it is I've heard this from? '
I'm in the mood to run butt naked.
And since you are here to deliver such news...
Why don't you prove to me,
You are fed up with it too.~
It wasn't you.
It was someone else.
You take the fun out of being evil.'
