Unshakened, Unrelenting And Reliable - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

More warnings to them will come,
To be ignored.
And in the face of disaster,
Defiantly they will take a stance.
With claims to make they will rebuild,
AGAIN.
And AGAIN...
It will be expected their lack of 'sense',
Of comprehending messages sent...
Will prove their ignorance to be instilled.
Unshakened, unrelenting and reliable.

'GOD.
Please restore our possessions.
Please return to us,
Those precious impressions...
We knew and lived to make.
Dear GOD,
Please help us overcome...
These inconvenient threats to our lives.
Dear God,
Please help us to 'temporarily'...
Take these few minutes to realize and tolerate,
The doing to do without greed.'
