Clearing Out Of The Mouths
Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)
Clearing out of many mouths are doubts.
And more who deliberately sat on fences,
Are being shown their kept defenses...
Can nolonger stay,
That way in their minds.
To pretend not to know,
Those they chose to support and endorse...
Continues to reveal,
An embarrassing felt that shows exposed.
Truth to keep denying the reality of it,
Stops to end when overwhelming evidence...
Begins a fast stripping away,
Of pretensions fading with a quick decay.
As people awaken to witness for themselves,
Who in positions...
Skilled to deliver,
Repetitive rhetoric to sell told to tell.
Yet unable to prove a competence to have it,
That benefits no one else but themselves.
While the people are left,
Beginning to observe too well...
Why and who it is,
Preventing a progress to satisfy only...
An implementing of conflict and division.
Claimed to conveniently blame,
On the ethnic diversity of a democracy...
That has little to nothing to do,
With a lack of leadership.
Coming out of the mouths,
Of those who refuse to be the adults...
They are suppose to be to prove!
One day they want 'this'.
The next day they want 'that'.
And if they can't get either?
Tantrums are thrown.
With a taking away their balls and bats.
From a game to play until they win.
At whose expense,
Is the delaying of the game played!
Slices of pizza will do the trick!
Children love pizza.
