Escaping Away From Intentions Made

A damage meant to have done it.
With it hope to escape away,
As a rehearsed and staged...
Performance of sincerity is portrayed.
Does not erase from memory,
Vile and disrespecting statements made.
For the purpose to obtain empathy.
Expected to receive,
From those accustomed to buying into...
One's clever delivery of their selling B.S.
Since that damage to do has been done!
And seldom has anyone been victimized,
Been unaware of it yet witnessed by others.
Seen jumping for joy and hugging,
Someone else who had admitted...
To be the culprit of their sorrows.
Followed by anguish and agony.
Then accused and blamed,
For self inflicting their own pain.
When did that amusement park,
Offer free entrance without a fee to pay!
