Under The Skin Of Those Misguided - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who chose to poke their jokes,
At the expense of sincere folks
Seem to be missing in action these days.

Perhaps realizing they are
It never pays for those intentions made,
To select those defenseless and unknowing
Of the extent or depth of one's misdeeds.

Because
Those same misdeeds done,
Have a way of crawling under the skin...
Of those misguided.

To teach lessons to leave unforgiving,
Mental treatments difficult to diagnose.
And the best medication can not numb,
Or relieve
The consistency of a permanent stinging.

Especially when those acts provoked,
To joke and poke sincere folks discreetly
Usually develop from one's unconsciousness.
Making it hard to prescribe a process for specific healing.
