To Infest And Manifest - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why do they glare?
Those who stop to stare...
With a bringing of their gloom,
To pollute environments everywhere.

Do they perceive themselves to be,
Rulers Of Acceptance.
Judges Of Appearances.
Police to guard values and standards...
Molding with age and on the decrease.

Why do they restrict to insist,
Those of ethnic differences...
Should from themselves be distanced quick.
With minds influenced by ignorance,
To infest and manifest.

And they feast upon with feeding misery.
Miseries denying hiding,
Insecurities.

Do they perceive themselves to be,
Rulers Of Acceptance.
Or police to guard what's valued...
Hypocritically!

And they feast upon with feeding misery.
Miseries denying hiding,
Insecurities.
To infest and manifest.

And they feast upon with feeding misery.
Miseries denying hiding,
Insecurities.
To infest and manifest.

And they feast upon with feeding misery.
To infest.
And manifest.

And they feast upon with feeding misery.
To infest.
And manifest.
