...But, What?


Care not for too much care for idle woe,
heavy of sigh and over-weaning whine;
the kind kids learned when they heard the word "no";
oh, if only crying were a lifeline.

Pity’s fine to point of passivity;
till dull drive for remedy would demur;
prefer sympathy to activity,
fail to attend to the aches one could cure.

Sulky adolescence prays indulgence;
crusty curmudgeons lament better day;
grown men complain emasculation; hence
lone women wonder, real ones, where are they?

What straits we err to entertain and hone!
We can’t change others, but ‘kick butt’ – Our own!

Title caught my eye.
Will make me think twice whenever I hear my 5 year-old lament, "But why".
