  11197.     

Social Bankruptcy

As a result of their convictions,
With a desire to obtain a social status.
One they grabbed at when that opportunity arrived!
Some have earned those sought titles.
To have lives prioritized with a guarantee...
They have what it takes.
And have 'made it' in 'this' society!

But...
What is it have they really achieved?
Sacrificing their skills and knowledge,
To improve humanity?
I'm sure 'somewhere' under the barrage of bad news,
Those images are highlighted,
To provide moralistic inspiration viewed and as seen.

What is it have they really achieved?
Honestly...
Let's share!

An ability to say,
They have a good credit rating...
That promises to stay that way?
To keep their nouveau riche noses,
Stuck high in polluted air?

What is it have they really achieved?
A reflection of a greed,
That suppresses those in need.
And choosing to bask in attitudes,
As superficial representatives...
Doing what those with a false sense of self do?

And...
What they have accomplished does succeeds.
From their point of view.
Although,
What is reflected...
Is their connection,
To a widespread and unprecedented failure...
Unconsciously digested.

What is it have they really accomplished?
When so many with degrees have been qualified...
To do,
What?
Prove a gluttony that leaves all to bleed?

What is it have they really accomplished?
A greater sense of ignorance that sits on the edge,
Of a once caring humanity that has become magnetizied...
To social bankruptcy.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Social Event

I do not take without giving.
Nor do I receive without gratitude!
For anyone to believe,
These traits are not a mandate from God,
Take their faith for granted
And leave their places of worship
With nothing more on their minds
But a social event attended,
And a hope they were observed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11199.     

Social Illiterates

Why are the people angry?

'Comments made to them,
Were upsetting when expressed.'

But...
Were they true?
And from who?

'All of it was true.
And everyone listening knew it too.
Those who stayed after the booing died down.
And paid attention with a listening done.'

Then...
What is the problem?

'The speaker who spoke,
Came dressed to impress.
And no one expected,
Their delusions to become affected...
By such an effectiveness as to them addressed.'

So what did the speaker say?

'He kept calling them social illiterates.
And many of them began to leave,
Saying...
No one is going to tell them,
They are 'dumb' and do not know how to read.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Social Madness

Logic to the winds blew fast,
Leaving common sense corrupted.

It's social madness,
Carried on backs.
It's social madness,
Did a lack of cash do that?

Logic to the winds blew fast,
Leaving common sense corrupted.

It's social madness,
Carried on backs.
It's social madness,
Did a lack of cash do that?
And gone.
Gone.
Gone...
Is the benefit of senses.
Did a lack of cash do that?
With offenses.
Did a lack of cash do that?

Minds are dazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And crazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?

And gone.
Gone.
Gone...
Are many fools on the loose.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And abusive people.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And hunger everywhere..
Did a lack of cash do that?
With those homeless.
Did a lack of cash do that?
Rise of fear.
Did a lack of cash do that?
With evil near.
Did a lack of cash do that?

And gone.
Gone.
Gone...
Is all common sense.
Did a lack of cash do that?
Minds are dazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And crazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?

It's social madness,
Carried on backs.
It's social madness,
Did a lack of cash do that?

Logic to the winds blew fast,
Leaving common sense corrupted.
And...
Gone.
Gone.
Gone,
To never come back.
Common sense!
Where is it at?
Did it up and scat?
With the big fat cats.

It's...
Social madness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
Minds are dazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And crazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?

It's madness!
Did a lack of cash do that?
Minds are dazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And crazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
It's madness!
Did a lack of cash do that?
Minds are dazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And crazed.
Did a lack of cash do that?

It's...
Social madness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And sadness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
It's...
Madness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And sadness.
Did a lack of cash do that?

And gone.
Gone.
Gone...
Is all common sense.

It's...
Social madness.
Logic to the winds blew fast,
Leaving common sense corrupted.
It's...
Social madness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
It's...
Madness.
Did a lack of cash do that?
And sadness.
This...
Social madness.
