Annointed To Oppose


Persistence with a consistency to uncover the unknown,
Can sometimes irritate those being shown...
Who sit with limited and discussed expectations.
In the hopes that they do find repetitive ways,
To critique with a redundant process they find easy.

And often they do this with a passing of judgement done.
As if a standard one has placed on achieving quality,
Is determined by those who pretend they know...
How it is they have been annointed to oppose,
A quality being introduced when much of it they've dismissed.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
