The Matrix of Mankind’s Behavior

~

I don’t understand

the workings of people,

and I’m quite sure

that the Pros

don’t even know.

~

Oh, they map some behavior,

publish and savor,

their findings in journals

to show.

~

I’ve read some,

studied some,

went to school,

even majored one,

and the pros,

I can tell you,

don’t know.

~

They study

individuals,

create

some generals,

then try

putting squares

in round holes.

~

What doesn’t fit,

they’ll just keep trying it,

on theories

from the different

schools.

~

Endurance, endeavor,

and nor will they ever

give up

in creating

new holes.

~

~

I don’t understand

the workings of people

when they say

that they can,

but they don’t.

~

Or people that swear

that they really do care,

say they will

when they obviously won’t.

~

I don’t understand

why some people drive

like a bat-out-of-hell

to get by.

~

Then, Quick!

cut in front,

to turn,

then they don’t,

Why not?

What is it?

Why?

~

I can’t comprehend

how some people love –

Some crave for honey,

some just for money.

Others have reasons as funny.

~

Honey turns sticky,

money gets tricky;

by funny

I mean really quirky.

~

Divorce,

is perforce,

the obvious course;

but as soon

as they’re through,

they’re ready to woo –

~

I don’t understand

how they love.

~

The world

doesn’t change

so much as it’s strange,

in the matrix

of mankind’s behavior.

~

And nobody knows

as far as it goes,

but endurance, impassion, endeavor

all appear

to make

man seem so clever.

~

But like it or not

that’s all that we’ve got,

and no one

understands

man’s behavior.
