Wherever A Nepotism Connection Sits - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Exceptions are only awarded,
To those selected to be worthy of them...
By those who wish not to expose,
Their incompetence in the presence...
Of anyone thought to be too intelligent,
To recognize an obvious deficiency...
By one who has acquired a position,
Based upon nepotism alone.
And expectations are not often praised either,
From the lips of those aching with disappointment...
Wherever a nepotism connection sits in high places.
