The 'troof' Is In The Taste Of The Pudding - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People believe,
They should be treated...
With more respect.
Even those who have such beliefs,
Could care less...
When, where and who it is they disrespect,
To then expect what they have done to others...
Be an exception to excuse,
Their negligent and abusive childhoods.

'WHEN are 'you' people going to learn,
To break this cycle of ignorance!
AND grow up.
Take responsibility for your actions.
With a doing that to be adults.'

~What do you mean YOU PEOPLE?
And I aint ignorant.
I happen to be of mixed heritage,
Thank you.
Get your facts straight.
That's why my children aint learning 'nuthin',
In these schools.
We need better teachers.
And people who know how to treat us,
Like human beings.~

'What? Huh? '

~Sure.
Go ahead.
Make excuses.
If I could afford to live where you live,
Me and the rest of us wouldn't have these problems.~

'Uh...
Huh? '

~Forget it.
Why should any of 'US' expect you to understand.~

'This has got to be an epidemic.'

~You can call me anything you want.
But the 'troof' is in the taste of the pudding.~
