What Do We Want? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who have participated,
In their own diminished quality of life...
To have ostracized and shunned,
The ones living their lives...
To ignore what others sought to do done.
Are now accused,
For their happiness to express.
With a hoping this to address...
Gives them visibility and lots of media press.

Although,
The ones who sacrificed to put up with nonsense,
Have those who had participated...
In their acceptance to initiate and manifest it,
Having difficulty explaining...
Why they are not satisfied by the outcome achieved,
To have left them with the nonsense they've created...
Alone with it to leave.

'What do we want? '

~We don't know.~

'And when do we want it? '

~NOW! ~

'WHAT DO WE WANT? '

~WE DON'T KNOW.~

'AND WHEN DO WE WANT IT? '

~WHEN SOMEONE HAS IT.
AND TO US IT SHOWS.~
