Standing Proud And Sharing

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)

The ridiculousness.
Revealed as is exposed to observe it.
And flaunted to flutter around,
As if feathers on a peacock prancing.
Proud and sharing...
An arrival,
To a shallow emptiness...
In a full meaningless display,
Of a fraud to parade.

Standing proud and sharing their awe,
Are also fools in denial taking 'selfies'!
To sell bought and sold to the many,
Giving each other...
High fives
Fist bumps and victory signs.
In declaration of destroying,
Their own dependency...
On a democracy that offers,
Entitlements they freely receive.
To use, abuse and deceive,
Hollow minds to believe...
Diversity they feed upon relentlessly,
Has nothing to do...
With their pretensions to charade,
A rage and its false marketing...
Of having what THEY have stolen,
Illegitimately taken away from them.

Disappointing those corrupted,
Who have been instructed...
To use any means necessary,
In the hopes to disprove...
Idiots, morons and fools...
Are not close or distant relatives.
Dressed to impress in different,
Custom made suits worn as costumes.
Regardless who believes,
They have remarkable similarities!
