Purpose No Secret (poem)

Purpose No Secret

 

One side having conceded to the other

Purpose no secret

Unilateral repudiation

Circumstance of high emotion

 

They would not presume

Being what they are

They know what words are expected

 

Pressure system measured

Extensively

Through years of hating

Openly

 

Blatant breach of rules

Others take

Otherwise let them go

A secret script for social misfits

Later proven not so

 

Measure by results

Not by-products

Inability to trust

Leads to calculation

Speaking condemningly of same

 

On the contrary

Others like bullies’

Provocation-fantasy

For the gullible again
