The Reality By Which One Lives - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When assumptions have become,
The reality by which one lives...
There is not a thing anyone can do,
To curtail their love of gossip.
That's the only reason keeping their 'purpose'...
Meaningful.

This 'activity' IS their life!
And debating with those with this mindset,
The advantages of seeing reality from a different perspective...
Is like the teaching of a grown cat,
Aspects of keeping quality hygiene.

This is not going to happen for the cat to get it.
Maybe if a kitten, yes!
But a grown cat,
No.
Even if you physically take its paws and put them in its mouth.
This approach would take the patience of Job.
You know...
The one in the Bible?
