To Go On So Long Gone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

An honesty,
Has long gone.
With respect to give.
Has long gone.
And a modesty is no where near.
Humility has disappeared.

An honesty,
Has long gone.
With respect to give,
Has long gone.
But, everyday someone is heard,
They're getting something undeserved.

What else from us,
Has long gone.
With it wanted much,
So long gone.
And that trust we knew,
We threw away for nonsense to prolong.

What else from us,
Has long gone.
With it wanted much,
So long gone.
And that trust we knew,
We threw away for nonsense to prolong.

An honesty,
Has long gone.
With respect to give,
Has long gone.
But, everyday someone is heard,
They're getting something undeserved.

What else from us,
Has long gone.
Tell me what else has been long gone.
To go on,
So long...
Gone.

To go on,
So long...
Gone.

What is it!
That has long gone.
What is it!
That has long gone.
What is it!
That has long gone.
Too long...
Prolonged.
