The Essence Of Why

Pondering the essence of why
A timeworthy distraction of substance
I’m thinking can you tell do you care
Why do you care if so tell me why
How can you possibly understand why
You feel like yo do when you don’t
Have a clue about why
Why is a reasoned response
hard to explain
Hard to detain and contain
Why is what’s said while stuck in the rain
Why is what’s said both pure and profane
A brain drain of passion and pain
Why the gouge in the taught celiphane
Try to explain the why in a name
What ain’t the same is only inane
Like figuring out why a large mustard stain
