This Sweeping Affliction Diseasing - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People 'peceiving' themselves protected,
By time they have taken to invest in deceptions...
Discover their minds slowly infested.
To believe their misdeeds gone undetected,
Will keep their mentalities from slipping away.
Or left kept unexposed to show,
This sweeping affliction diseasing.
And with a haunting no longer hidden to forget.
When such revealing attempts to prevent,
Consequences...
Can not stop the nuts from cracking up,
From those shells they themselves have created.

'Something is wrong and I don't understand it.'

~Do you think 'maybe'...
And I hope you don't find,
My observation offensive.
But...
That wall you are hitting your head against,
Could be connected to your misunderstanding?
Or have you discovered,
A more innovative way to remodel your home? ~
