With Approved Authority - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those who are extremely happy,
And proud to see those of color suffering.
This allows them to validate their wicked ways,
With a feeling better of themselves discreetly.
Knowing the can destroy the lives of others.
With approved authority,
Establish charities to convince they represent...
An image of wholesomeness,
That provides a dependency AND oppression...
Which protects and hides their incompetence,
With a shielding of their insecurities.
