Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

They Can Not Accept Truth


They can not look within themselves,
To uncover solutions to undo their problems.
Accustomed they are to placing blame.
Claiming faults elsewhere...
To sell that are sold and bought,
Anywhere beyond their own doorsteps sought.

They can not accept truth.
Pursuing it is not the reality they have created.
Conflicts to initiate with a dumping as often as they can,
Is a designing of a mindset...
They prefer and understand to restrict themselves to limits.
With this comprehended as if to demand.

And yet...
It is the living to disrespect to reject progress,
Is what is done they do at their best.
This they value with a few to protest.
Since...
Accepting truth is refused and offends.
