You Don'T Get Me - Poem by Myra Jefferson

If you don't get me, then you don't get me, you get me?
You should get me from the cover,
from the front or the back.
Okay, maybe at the dedication or the thank yous. If not,
the credits, the prologue, or the prefeace should clue you.
At the table of contents, you should have me by then.
I'm so easy to understand, understand?

I'm really not technical, but quite sentimental
And I might make you cry,
stay up until dawn and remind you why
you choose me in the first place
and you can't wait
to see how it turns out.

But of you keep going all the way through,
and still don't have a clue
or have to revisit the same chapters over and over again
or you need to take notes and have a review
then you don't get me, so you don't get me, you get me?
