Viewed To Be Fair Of Skin - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

They are trying everything possible,
A human being can find!
To confine thought to fear,
And control one's mind!
It has already been decided,
To take away addicting pleasures.
Realizing without them,
Treasures some measure life...
Would produce anger, hatred and strife!
And this is counted on...
To get a civil unrest and disobedience prolonged!
Gaining an excuse to reduce those not wanted,
Amongst a population...
Viewed to be fair of skin!
Living in a world in which only dim wits fit in!
