Who Decided To Keep Them That Detached - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

To hear someone remark,
About the strangeness of the times.
Or how unusual people and things are today,
Only makes me wonder...
How far from reality have they been living?
And who decided to keep them that detached,
From a society drenched in chaotic variety.

Whose thinking with these thoughts processed,
That by keeping people isolated...
Was to their mental benefit?
And they would someday influence humanity,
With their abilities 'honed' in this isolation?
Although one thing is certain...
They will never have to worry about being recommended,
As problems solvers or solution mentors to anyone.
