Ba: Cviii: Philosophy - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Hardship says
“I know from where everything comes out
and ask you from here ‘What? ’ ”

There is no point in asking “Why? ”
as pride won’t hear a question;

therefore say “For you
I have doubt and cannot hear,
and for them
I see it is from I
that everything comes out.”
