Lawrence S. Pertillar
Dismissed To Be Kicked To The Curb
Frivolous and trifling actions,
Should not be condoned...
Between 'adults' appearing to be grown.
Yet an acceptance of this does exist,
In some environments beset by many...
Childish in mind and confined to limitations.
And determined to prove,
They can re-act immature like the children do.
Some who have aged and have earned this status,
Are not going to tolerate ignorance...
With a thoughtfulness that has been absent,
Of an idiot conditioned and still cemented...
In times when their actions by others were consented.
But today too much silliness should be seriously prevented.
Folks stuck in dispositions they can not give up,
Should be dismissed to be kicked to the curb.
Comprehending an explanation,
To connect the dots...
Would not for them establish to provide a benefit.
