The Only Standard To Value - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With a focused and fixed emphasis,
Place upon trivia to determine it has significance...
To prioritize as the meaning of life,
Embedded in the minds as a purpose to define...
The living of it,
Eventually uncovers the consequences...
Most have to pay,
When the displayed of an accepted foolishness...
Becomes the only standard to value,
As those delusions most treasure...
Are wishes to keep for them to come true.
