A Layman Speaks Better - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

We profess our intelligence
By speaking things,
Rarely without metaphor
And seldom define
What a thing is
Except by saying that
It is something else.
A layman communicates better.

    depends on how it is said and how it is conceived! ......due to generalization or wideness of subject matter sometimes we must always go to elaboration to be understood by all..............yet time constraint and having not the words make it complicated! ! ! true layman's term the simplicity of mind and words makes the area visible.....
