The Consideration Of A Non-Action Taken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Affirming the consideration of a non-action taken,
Would be more productive for those who fence sit...
Than pretending an action thought to think about,
Is relevant to the ones awaiting to hear a debate...
That for decades has been outdated in its importance.
Like an attempt made to discuss the 'birds' and the 'bees',
To those changing diapers in high school nursuries!
Even for the many who have erased from their minds...
As to what had been prioritized for purposes to keep them,
From moving back and forth through a gate that has been...
Open to do as they choose and please.
To leave those hesitating in procrastination,
When, if, how and or why...
What it is that influences who or whom left sought to approve!
'Perhaps we should use a different approach,
Since it is obvious our standards we value...
Have lost meaning and effectiveness.
Especially for the ones that have shown to us...
That becoming more decisive,
Has for them already been done to do without explanation!
And they neither seek or need direction from anyone.'
