The Lawlessness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The lawlessness,
That has increased to make many...
Tired and sick of it,
Has been allowed to exist...
By those refusing to acknowledge it,
When first they were made aware.

But they were the ones who had 'then' stated,
'Being negative...
With such pointless comments to make,
Only diminishes the progress made.'

The lawlessness,
That has increased to make many...
Tired and sick of it,
Has been allowed to exist...
By those refusing to acknowledge it,
When first they were made aware.

And 'now' that they are aware of the lawlessness,
To have been permitted to exist...
Calls to unify and protest against it,
Are voices heard to fade with them left distanced.
With a progress that could have been made evaded.

'We are in need of more police,
To clean our streets...
From the crime that has increased.
And where are the people,
Who act as if they are deep in sleep.'

The lawlessness,
That has increased to make many...
Tired and sick of it,
Has been allowed to exist...
By those refusing to acknowledge it,
When first they were made aware.

'We have a crisis over here.
We are in need of help to make it disappear.'

Remember when you stated...
'Being negative...
With such pointless comments to make,
Only diminishes the progress made.'
Well...
Welcome to your reality you have created.
What or who are you seeking to help you,
To fix it? !
