Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Was Any Of This Meant To Be Intentional?
We introduced the confusion and conflicts,
With our deceit.
What else do you wish to have revealed?
'I have a question.'
What is it?
'Was any of this meant to be intentional? '
But none of us could foresee,
Placing the blame on someone else...
Would come to effect,
The masquerading of our credibility.
And we are here,
To beg of you a forgiveness.
If this should happen again? '
We will be here to beg of you a forgiveness.
What is it that you don't understand,
About this process?
Our values and standards are kept very high.
Oh, okay! '
