The Bottomline Is This - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The bottomline is this:
Are there people searching their souls,
And spending sleepless nights...
With a losing of their precious time,
Concerned with interest...
About someone or anyone who commits,
Heinous crimes?

Are their actually people,
Pacing the floor with nothing else in their minds...
But to wonder,
The background and testing scores...
Of someone who apparently,
Represents what others find to be unbelievable?

The bottomline is this:
How can a modern society excuse to dismiss,
All that is visable to allow to go unadmitted.
And where have those of a 'consciousness' been...
To say innocently,
They had no hint or acknowledgement...
Of all that happens clearly exposed up in their faces.
