Assoholic

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)



Addicted to a self serving righteousness.
And drugged,
On an overdosing of hypocrisy.
The assoholic has arisen.
Staggering.
From one contradiction,
To the next predictable...
Mindless decision made.

Common sense?
Gone.
Insight and clear of vision?
Not there to be theirs with consciousness.
Or anywhere to observe it witnessed.

Too stupored with power to delude.
A power that excludes truth and reality.
Yet...
Determined to abuse,
Entitlements to claim they alone own.

But too late to discover such druthers,
Kept to keep fed to feast.
Eventually finds,
Constipates an unused mind.
Digesting on the taste of a wasted victory.
To either sit or throw up.
Into a toilet to flush out guts.
And all pretensions.
That bad judgements make...
To imitate glory.
With a returning upon them to backfire!
Leaving a smell everyone knows,
Who created to foul the atmosphere!
