A Broaden View - Poem by Patricia Rudolph

A broaden view is all about folk who haven't a clue;
about why we sue, the meaning of in lieu,
who decides on a coup, the meaning of the color blue,
the meaning of the number two. Why animals are caged
in a place called zoo?
Why gumbo has rue? Why such mixtures are called stew?
Why employees and friends are referred to as crew?
When bills are due, Why sticky stuff is called glue?
What is a Guru?
Where is Peru?
About Politics, Religion and Your point of view.
If answers you pursue, it's about communications, illusion,
wisdom, commodities, toxins too, and why a lie is never true.
Now if you're wondering just what to do, yes, it's all about
Purpose too!
