Somehow They Understood That Immediately - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Well...
It is a beginning.
That,
You will have to confess.

Admit it!

At least several of them,
Have seen a forest before.

However...
Many are still questioning,
The purpose for the trees.

'Well...
It is a beginning.

At least several of them,
Have seen a forest before.'

That's exactly what I said!

'I know.
I'm stalling for time.
I am attempting to create an answer,
That will first make sense to me.'

Good luck!
I've already told them,
I was not from their neighborhood.
And somehow they understood that immediately.
I am doing all I can to remember them...
As college students.
Good luck!
I'm glad I did not request this field trip.
