Childish, Petty, Immature and Stupid

Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)



Childish, petty, immature and stupid.
Although regarded,
By their faithful and loyal constituents...
Qualified to provide,
The best leadership possible that represents...
Identifiable pretentiousness,
Known!
That has for them no competition,
Shown to have...
Such breathtaking and steadfast devotion.

People like this are proud to display,
Their 'nutness'.
Regardless if the act portrays,
Betrayal, treason and self destruction!
People like this,
Will follow their favorite clown.
Even in the midst,
Of their own circus tent to build...
With an applauding of it burning down.
Around them to command it done!
