Wholesomeness To Thirst - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A flourishing to nourish with it to prosper,
Has gone.
Every purpose found to be worthy,
Too has gone.
And a wholesomeness to thirst,
With it kept prioritized first...
Has been removed from the scene.
And gone is its depth and long lasting meaning.

Someone came along to protest discipline.
Someone came along to convince this should end.
Someone with influence,
Convinced rules should be disobeyed.
Someone made it too easy,
To create conflict, chaos and disarray.

A flourishing to nourish with it to prosper,
Has gone.
Every purpose found to be worthy,
Too has gone.
And a wholesomeness to thirst,
With it kept prioritized first...
Has been removed from the scene.
And gone is its depth and long lasting meaning.

Someone came along to protest discipline.
Someone came along to convince this should end.
Someone with influence,
Convinced rules should be disobeyed.
Someone made it too easy,
To create conflict, chaos and disarray.

'Don't look at me.
I was invited to feast.
But I will admit a desire to be in the midst of it.
Excuse me.
Are you going to eat those wings?
Or are you just going to let them sit? '

Every purpose found to be worthy,
Has gone.
And a wholesomeness to thirst,
With it kept prioritized first...
Has been removed from the scene.
And gone is its depth!
And with it any insight left to have long lasting meaning.

~Take them.
I've decided I'm not qualified to be here.~
