Superficial Is Official - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When the people pick...
Physical appearances,
Dressed with images.

Superficial is official,
When everyone depicts...
What for them is serious,
To accept what is legit.
And,
Dismissed...
Are realities,
With a purpose to gain.
And,
Dismissed...
Is a reason to succeed.
And...
Dismissed,
Is initiative when people believe...
Working towards a goal,
Is a foolish wasted deed.

Superficial is official,
When the people pick...
Physical appearances,
Dressed with images.
To dismiss reality,
Of those who will believe,
Superficial is official when someone receives...
Attention with an image given,
To mirage and to deceive...
Attention with an image given,
With no depth that's deep.
Superficial is official,
When it feeds the need.
