The Effectiveness Of Fear And Threats - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The producing to introduce fear,
Only unleashes conflicts to chase.
To then hide in separate divisions.
With a uselessness of comparisons,
Based upon religious beliefs and intelligence...
Between color, class and someone's race.

The effectiveness of fear and threats,
Has already been witnessed...
To heights of implemented ignorance.
Assisted by a lack of discipline.
And disrespect invested in regret.
How foolish can fools prove they can get?

To eliminate the existence of this,
Has to be a consciousness that's aware of it.
With a determination to self examine,
Self reflect and not find excuses...
To first seek reasons to be offended,
By the presence of truth left to leave suspected...
Because the honesty of it is not politically correct.
