Too Offensive To Face - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How swift we keep those games loved protected,
With a showing of a collective indignity...
When a confessed honesty is openly expressed.
And yet, the seriousness of an eroding quality of life,
On a daily basis affecting everyone...
Accepting conflict, confusion, stress and strife,
As an attempt awaited debating of laws...
Followed not to erase embarrassing flaws,
But Ignored to tolerate the seriousness of their existence.
Since priorities kept to be entertained,
Remains as if worshipped at the top of the list.

How swift we keep those games loved protected,
With a showing of a collective indignity...
When a confessed honesty is openly expressed.
And yet...
Slipping into an abyss is the depth of truth,
Too offensive to face...
By so many deluded,
Who prefer to keep their delusions in place.
To charade a masquerading not to fade but further faked.
