Inflamed And Embroiled

It is as if we MUST live in fear today.
To protect a peace that is betrayed,
By unknown faces and places unfamiliar!
I refuse to live that way!
Am I a suspect of treason?
Since I carry no reason
On my back to be afraid?
I refuse restrictions that delay...
A peace I know can flow but strays,
With a new weapon preached,
As I duck from the spit that's sprayed!
There is nothing that can reach...
Those caught in this feverish,
Beseeching heat!
Inflamed and embroiled they seek,
To defeat!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Inflammatory Remarks

Inflammatory remarks...
Concised,
But should not be dismissed.
Actions engaging fear and terror,
To incite beliefs of those racist...
With observations biting to excite,
Increases the decrease of a credibility
That is allowed to further exist.

The origin of inflammatory remarks,
Did not just start to tear people apart.
This evilness has been given an artform...
To alarm a way of life!
Engrossing only those...
Who have chosen to anger with deceit,
And employ to their advantage
This strfe that ignites.

And conflicting fights begin,
To have the 'majority' appear as victims!
However...
Who incarcerated,
Or lives homeless on city streets...
Surrounded by blight with nothing to eat.
Believes this?
As those observing those self serving...
Know too well,
The outlook for all appears extremely bleak!

Inflammatory remarks spoken or not...
Has not erased the obscenities that have disgraced.
And a way of life valued,
That has been disrespected...
By an acceptance of neglect,
Those participating have assisted to deface!
And a diminishing witnessed,
Is without a 'collective' cohesive defense.
Apparently this to them of such ignorant whims,
Makes useless sense to condemn!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Inflated Self Worth

Inflated self worth...
May be a need some must feed,
To receive attention.
Or a curiousity shown,
To them expressed and mentioned.

Eventually to be addressed,
At someone else's expense.

And this often takes place,
When those who love to embellish...
Do so,
When it is realized the audience listening...
Has several unfamiliar and attentive fresh faces.

To accomplish and achieve what one believes,
Is an easier way to notoriety...
Than providing the actual evidence that can be researched.
But then again when one embellishes a delusion,
One is hoping that a dazzling performance is sufficient...
Enough,
To enthrall newcomers and nonbelievers.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  7360.     

Inflated To Over-Rate

Fame to achieve can not be predicted.
Or can it be claimed without working for it.
Although many who proclaim their success and fame,
Seldom name to acknowledge those who assist...
Placing the pieces together to fit.

Eventually received is an attention one gets,
With a boasting of activities they alone created.
But those unseen behind the scenes,
And actually tolerated being demeaned...
By others who believed them to be 'wannabees',
Connected to get one's fame in place...
While observing an inflated to over-rate ego.

'An ego no longer fed,
Eventually has to produce.
Stealing from another to then embellish it,
Leaves an ego that relishes the doing of this...
Left to produce and alone what it is they have claimed.'

~What do you mean? ~

'Time has a way of providing definition.
And those familiar with a work one claims to have done,
Will sooner or later discover the reality that comes.'

~That's too deep for me to comprehend.~

'One day your eyes will open wide,
To reveal what is not understood.
Life has a way of shining light,
On those whose minds were expected stay blinded.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
