Alas! Their absence reveal

Alas! Their absence reveal
What the hagiography tried to conceal
Genuine experiences that were not so good
For the mischievous; misguided! mistreated; misunderstood

Their objections - never found release
So their hurt and anger knew no surcease
Those who could went along with the fantasy
With an emotional mixture as harmful as coke and ecstasy

Others spoke with their absence
Leaving the innocent perplexed
But others knew-
Especially those who vexed

Expedient means
Have yielded their consequences
While there are those who build bridges
Others build fences

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
