They Know Better - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those who believe,
They know better what others should do.
With it done.
Yet can not tell anyone,
If they know the people they talk about.
Or why they were not aware,
Of knowing what others should do...
Who have done that and more,
Without them having a clue.
But...
Will continue to insist,
They already knew about that.
Although the when, where and how...
For whatever the reason,
Is not readily accessible to their memory.
