Why, the Truth and Difference Tie
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


Why am I not surprised
To see this side of life
Even when I live, even when I lie

Why am I not disguised
Why don't I care to hide
Even when they wither, even when they die

Why am I not concise
Why don't I care to say
All that I really see, all I convey today

Why am I not devised
To surface when I sail
Why am I not designed, to prevail
