I Don't Understand


She wiggled her toes in the sand
and looked around at this giant land
All she could say is I don't understand

So The sky is blue, and the grass is green
So why can't people just say what they mean?
Birds can fly way up above
Why do you hurt the ones you love?

I've been watching people since I was born
I know their every move, their every turn
Sometimes that makes me seem out of place
Just be observant
You can see it in their face
Just look around

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
