Taken Out Of Context - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one rages without a cause.
Or decides at the height of boredom,
To seek revenge unless introduced...
To a repetition of deception,
That continues to escalate...
From another's direct baiting,
Of an instigated hatred beginning to seethe...
And churn to stir at one's boiling core.

And then,
Of course...
Accusations are made.
By those who say a joke was misunderstood.
And taken out of context.
To confuse a few disbelieving it should.
The very same ones who create a havoc done,
For sport and fun sprung from a childishness.

No one rages without a cause.
Or decides at the height of boredom,
To seek revenge unless introduced...
To a repetition of deception.
And...
At the expense of one who has been forced,
To lose a sense of humor.
