Putting the Right Foot into the Left Mouth

~

Do you think Uncle Walt would be happy today?

Do you think he would recognize Manhattan?

.

Do you think Uncle Walt would have something to say?

Do you think?

or just do not know?

.

Of the former and latter, which would be better?

The former is better, but in saying the latter

would be just as good, ‘cause I think that it shows

that you’re ready and willing for open-end questions.

.

The open-end questions and the open-end answers

help in the flow of the ‘knows.’

.

And the open-end questions and the open-end answers

puts to the end of the ‘yeses’ and ‘nos.’

.

For to think is to ready the open cognition,

and it helps in the flow of the ‘knows.’

.

My mama once told me

my papa was Toby,

so I said: do you really think so?

.

In the end when you’re ready with open-end answers,

better to think, before letting it go.

.
