That's Crazy - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How treacherous are those,
Seeking both power AND control...
Over you and others?

'How? '

So treacherous,
They have you believing...
Your neighbor is the reason,
Taxes you pay.
Crimes and violence committed...
Is the reason,
Blatant corruption, terrorists and their threats...
Will not end until,
You purchase weapons to get...
To end the presence of fear,
In your home, schools and even churches.
And marketed with you to believe...
That a peace to have whenever you decide it,
Is yours to have if you suspect...
Someone you've known most of your life,
Has been deceiving you to do you harm.
But first...
Kids are getting accustomed to killing themselves,
By use of video games and designer drugs.

'That's crazy.'

I know.
It is.
Isn't it?
