Down To Earth And Obvious


Why is it those of limited minds,
Have unlimited time to belittle and pick on others...
With a doing to prove,
Someone they choose...
Has wasted their time doing nothing at all?

And if they had interests in something to do,
Like the doing done by the ones who choose.
Less to say with created gossip done about anyone.
Or who should do what or go where 'if' truthfully attached.
By leaving where they are to go to prove they are 'ALL THAT'.

Only to discover with embarrassment that shows,
That the one they picked on...
Is not only national but internationally known.
And the doing of it was right under their noses,
To expose those of unlimited time to belittle...
Just who knows what about nothing at all.
Especially if it's beyond,
Their overly protected and inexperienced comfort zones.

'Excuse me.
Have often do you it and how long is it kept? '

~What?
What are you talking about?
Kept? !

'Your ignorance.
Do you enjoy it left marinated?
Or have you taken the opportunity,
To taste a bit of wisdom from a dish you have yet to nibble? '

~I am fine staying just the way I am.
Down to Earth.
Without trying to be someone I am not.~

'That's obvious.'

~And what do you mean by that? ~

'Don't get upset.
You're not the only one down to Earth and obvious.'

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
