Three little words - Shared by many









Lane locked


Is it better to ask questions
Or provide answers?
You can lead someone to the truth
But you can’t make them contemplate it
Stubborn is the horse that bit the feeder
Bold in print
Still requires a reader.

It’s hard to envisage the distant future
When we are stuck in the present
It’s impossible to embrace new ideologies
If what we know is so ingrained
That we clutch it - hell-bent.

When the option preferred is to blame everyone else
Than to consider decisions made prior
Squinting one way through Perspex walls
Dig in
Rather than inquire.

The prospect of contemplation
Surely equates to no small amount of perspiration
Easier with three little words
No fuck given.
