Those Uncouth And Ruthless - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
It had been banned...
And those who spoke it,
Were ostracized and shunned.
A lie guaranteed memberships in cliques.
And those choosing to do so...
Were lifted in praise.
To show themselves glorious,
And loved for their deeds in masterful craze.
They had the upper hand...
Those uncouth and ruthless.
Quick to tarnish someone's name,
For personal gain and recognition aimed.
And promoting themselves,
To positions held to hide incompetence...
They became suspicious of intelligent thinking,
And demanded ignorance to run rampant!
A decision that kept them sinking,
In a funk stinking!
As they solicited 'experts' from outside,
Comfort zones of leisure...
To help them 'deny' by trial and error,
Reasons 'why' they lost control of their own kind!
They were not slick enough,
To hide this sickness
Resulting from their demented minds.
