That 'Rubbing' Done That Has Appalled You

If you really want to feel offended by anything done,
To you that is believed is directed.
Be you offended,
By being deceived, manipulated and used.
By those who have thrown that up in your face.
Then compared that to something you've heard,
That you have felt...
Rubbed you the wrong way.

Now...
With that 'rubbing' done that has appalled you,
Connect that something said...
To that which is actually happening to you.
On a daily basis that you have blindly accepted.
With that false faith you project to protect.
That accepts being deceived, manipulated and used.
What words have you heard has directly affected your life?

The words you don't like?
Or the people honest enough to say them?

Now...which do you prefer when being stabbed in the back?
Being able to selected the instrument used?
Or do you have a preference for a certain color?

That Search Has Been Agonizing

The hardest thing for me to learn,
Was to say, 'No.'
And after I learned how to say it...
It became difficult,
Not to premeditate its use.

Now I am seeking someone,
To teach me...
When the use of saying 'no'
Has its disadvantages.
And so far...
That search has been agonizing.

That Sharing Of Our Own Ignorance

We haven't been this close since,
Well...
Too much time spent and wasted,
To convince one another,
Being petty with a picking of dislikes...
To pick with a doing what we did like,
Apart...
Was a doing to place blame,
And immature ambiguity.

And we come back together,
Wanting to mend what was broken.
With both of us now less outspoken.
And willing to listen.
Because we reminisced,
Too much what was missing.

We haven't been this close since,
Well...
Too much time spent and wasted,
Creating things to hate.
Believing it became okay to appropriate,
An appreciation...
Of being petty with a picking of dislikes...
To pick with a doing what we did like,
Apart.
To awaken to realize and remember,
Both of our hearts were meant to love.
Each other.
Like no one other could, can or would.

And this we now know,
Because we've been reminiscing too much...
Of the love that was missing.
With that honesty between us known.
To forget with an absence to regret,
That a being petty with a picking of dislikes...
To pick with a doing what we did like,
Apart...
Began to be felt too deep in our hearts,
Until we had to face with facts...
The foolishness of being THAT stupid,
Did become too unbearable not to admit.
Even if...
Both of us didn't realize it 'then',
Just how much we were willing to accept...
The sharing of our own ignorance.

I hope it's gone...
It doesn't belong!
That...
Sharing of our own ignorance.
It doesn't belong!
I hope it's gone...
The sharing of our own ignorance.
I hope it's gone...
Because it doesn't belong!
That...
Sharing of our own ignorance.
It doesn't belong!
I hope it's gone...
The sharing of our own ignorance.
I hope it's gone...
Because it doesn't belong!
That...
Sharing of our own ignorance.
The sharing of our own ignorance.
That...
Sharing of our own ignorance.
The sharing of our own ignorance.
That...
Sharing of our own ignorance.
I hope it's gone...
Because it doesn't belong.

Those storm...
And bitter winds,
I hope they don't begin!
And they're gone.
They don't belong.
I hope they're gone.
They don't belong.
Those storm...
And bitter winds,
I hope they don't begin!
And they're gone.
They don't belong.
I hope they're gone.
They don't belong.

That Should Prevent Any Further Outbursts

It has been made official.
The elite,
Once referred to as politicians...
Have now declared,
Violent acts commited by 'nuts'...
Those a notch up from disgruntled.
And reflecting a decadent society...
Will be regarded as distasteful!

And after psychiatric studies,
Have, indeed...
Been successfully completed,
By hand picked medical experts...
To determine the origin,
Of such embarrassing behavior...
Let it be known,
That this day and this day forward...
All flags will be lowered to half mast,
To declare our national outrage.

'Now...
That should prevent any further outbursts,
Of civil disobedience.
It has been officially decreed,
We will no longer tolerate such insolence.'

~Horace,
I must say this.
I loved that suit.
The one you wore,
Upon making the announcement.
It looked as if it had been recently tailored.
Was it? ~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
