You Taught This - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You taught this...
Use of division to win all decisions.
You.
You taught this...
Conflicts to begin with no end to them.
And you taught...
How to start an argument to pretend,
To become offended when any began.

You taught this...
Being on both sides of a fence to lean against.
Yes.
You taught,
Creating opposition to teach them defense.
And you taught a few,
How to feed a greed to leave to hear pleas...
Of those homeless, hunger and in poverty.
While you...
Sat to satisfy your own selfish needs to please.
You taught this...
Selfish to care less Attitude you keep.

You taught this...
Use of division to win all decisions.
I remember you taught this...
Conflicts to begin with no end to them.
And you taught...
How to start an argument to pretend,
To become offended when any began.
Yes!
You taught this well.
And doing your best to stir up unrest.
Yes!
YOU, taught this well.
