Whenever Challenged - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Are they out of touch?
When have you known ego maniacs,
Not willing to massage themselves?
And if they can afford to do it publicly,
They will throw in a few dollars...
Just to prove they have one concern.
And that has nothing to do with other people.
Or the faking of a sincerity that is quickly erased.
And whenever challenged they will place a bet,
With a vying to get attention and doing that at their best.
Just to make it known and clear what they enjoy caressing.
