Silver Spoon Fed Snootocrats

It's a matter of fact.
Regardless who decides to skip over that.
There are those who believe,
They've been annointed to say and do...
Exactly what they please.
As they continue to afflict those most affected,
By noticeably rejecting their expectations...
With an enforcement of conditions,
To prevent their upward climb to ascend...
From depths manifested as traps to keep them in.

Tripping to flip flop without an opinion that stops,
A guessing to identify beliefs anyone feels that are exact.
And this flourishes a thoughtlessness from the ones who claim,
They represent with consent a condescending meant...
Towards those less fortunate to nourish their resentment.
While the values of the silver spoon fed 'Snootocrats',
Are kept perfectly intact to feed their greed and wasteful needs.
As they stand on the backs of those made to pay higher taxes,
Whether they do or do not reflect that segment of the 47 percent...
Who have long have had their shoulders, backs and knees bent.

'It is all a game to preserve our gains.
And those interests we identify as ours.
Here...
Take these two dollars and wipe your tears.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Similar And Familiar Feathers

Sometimes the exclusion of one with a purpose,
Intentionally unmentioned with a doing done...
Gets more attention from those who are curious,
As to why some are given a rise to heights...
With questionable deeds and unproven capabilities,
And one who is prolific with depth and consistency...
Goes obviously ignored.
Yet a blooming that is beautiful,
Continues to be viewed no matter what one does to do.

'Well...
That depends on who is invited to sit with those selected.
And agrees without offending,
Others who charade an absence of competence.
To allow them to gather together to convince,
Like birds of the same kind comfortable behind a fence...
Who flock with similar and familiar feathers.
And whatever it is they do that is done,
Not one amongst them stands out or will peacock about.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Similar Ignorant Circumstances

Since I live in a community
That is rich with pretentious 'do nothings',
I am regarded as a waste of potential,
Lazy and unaware of my talents!
I don't walk around with my resume on me
And find such beliefs as unfortunate!
I may be one of the few people
Who actually care about my neighbors!
And I thank God I am comfortable with myself
And not afraid of my own shadow!
If I thought I had to flaunt my 'gifts'...
I would be as insignificant
As those who have time
Assessing others to arise conflict
To satisfy their lack of self worth!
And I always thought God felt I was precious...
Or I wouldn't be able to write this,
For those who need a boost to lift themselves
From similiar ignorant circumstances!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Similar Tastes

Take a survey.
None of the polls are consistent.
In some thriving neighborhoods,
People have never heard of those...
Sitting at the top of best seller lists.
Or rated to be this and that,
But lack notoriety.

How is that possible? It wouldn't be...
If a polling was done to include everyone.
And integrity was not isolated,
To a campaign blitzing done...
On a selected demographic.
Chosen based upon familiarity...
And similar tastes in what is for some acceptable.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
