Wrap Up All The Nonsense - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is time to wrap up all the nonsense folks,
And doing away with all pronounced pretentiousness.
Many will find this difficult to do.
But the doing of it,
Can be done by anyone.

If we all grew and accepted maturity as a goal to reach,
No one would be provoked...
By the existence of truth spoken to speak.
Nor those who prefer it as a part of life to live,
Without their declarations offending anyone.

It is time to wrap up all the nonsense folks,
And doing away with all pronounced pretentiousness.
Many will find this difficult to do.
But the doing of it can be done by anyone,
Who decides truth is not a difficult pursuit.

Using one's own excuses and alibis to distance,
To deliberately accuse others of abuse...
Is as old as a pair,
Of comfortable but worn out soleless shoes.
To look good only for the sake of appearances.
