Undesirable But Required - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If a stubbornness kept,
Has led one...
With a back up against a brick wall?
Hopefully the humiliation is what's needed,
To get those eyeballs in that head...
Stretched as wide as possible.

Clarity in most cases,
Has to be experienced and delivered...
As a customized occurrence,
Personally felt to get full effect.
And needing no further explanation,
To achieve an undesirable but required end result.
