To Compare - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Too many seek to be impressed,
By those wishing to impress...
To believe,
An acceptance given to them to get...
Relieves to leave them feeling,
Above and much better...
Than the rest.

Too many seek to be impressed,
By those thinking they address...
Images that they reflect,
An annointing of a perfectness.
And,
They're selected to be 'chosen'.
With it known and without protest.

Well...
We all believe what we want to believe.
To make us feel good about ourselves.
And...
We all believe what we want to believe.
With this done to omit regrets.

Exceptions...
Many pick themselves as that,
To compare...
With others they will keep pushed back.
With beliefs to believe that's kept...
They're the cream at the top to get.

Exceptions...
Many pick themselves as that,
To compare...
With others they will keep pushed back.
With beliefs to believe that's kept...
They're the cream at the top one gets.

Too many seek to be impressed,
By those thinking they address...
Images that they alone...reflect,
An annointing of a perfectness.
Well...
We all believe what we want to believe.
Even if to take those 'trips' to deceive,
To know a truth can't be smothered.

Yet...
Very few dissect to inspect,
Those who pose themselves as being better...
At reflecting the best of exceptions.

Many pick themselves as that,
To compare...
With others they will keep pushed back.
With beliefs to believe they keep...
Others left on their knees to grieve.

Exceptions...
Many pick themselves as that,
To compare...
With others they will keep pushed back.
With beliefs to believe that's kept...
They're the cream at the top one gets.
But those who know,
Know that this is B.S.
And not the Business of Science.
