Ride Them Out - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

In your lifetime...
There will be those
Who may tell several lies about you.
Ride them out.
Defending them defeats your focus.
That is known.
That is why those demons show their heads.
To mislead.
Hopefully to get more believers...
Nonbelievers instead.
Ride this nonsense out!
Deceivers are the first to bleed.
Ride them out.
You will be relieved of their treachery.
Be patient.
And that will be hard to do.
Especially...
When you are close to removing some teeth.
Not your own.
And not with the aid of a dentist!
