Donna's Poems
Explain Please
by Donna Flood

Will someone of lofty intelligence explain to me.
How we folks can go to school, highest branch of the tree
I'm wantin' to know, asking to show, pleadin' to grow
Was it all just a time for fun, a trip, and a spree?

They studied deep subjects all about anger management.
Then they went and learned grief and sorrow's vent.
Read they did of divorce, death, separation anxiety.
Trusted professors explained families buried financially.

Course, I don't know all the particulars
About a Utah family of his and hers.
What were the ins and outs of the their quest?
I do know a father died, laid to rest.

I see many suggestions of so many in sorrow.
Oldest child a teen, others can see no 'morrow
Excuse me while I await you to explain to me
Where were all those of knowledge and degree?

I understand that space ship Enterprise, Star's Trek's
How it travels to other planets of such inferior wrecks.
In their superior culture of gifted learning they can
Meet each challenge and have a staunch stan'.

But that is another planet of light years away,
Not of their own back yard's play.
Their own soil is not tainted with such grief,
For their own hold armoured protection and a sheath
