To Find To Define It Meant - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Analyzing the affects,
A non-stop marketing...
Of a decadence has caused.
Without pausing to reflect,
How minds kept teased...
With symbolic images to impress
What it takes to obtain,
Success and attention to get.
Is a way of life,
Increasingly speeding...
To disease the mentalities,
Of its citizens.
And a definition,
To find to define it meant...
As 'humanity'.
Now more applicable,
To barbarians.
Seeking rocks and boulders,
To defend themselves...
Like their ancestors,
Before them.
Who also,
Relied upon their ignorance.
To prove they could defeat,
The presence of truth.
With belief,
Intimidating truth...
Proves who rules.
And has power to destroy!
