The war in Ukraine?
It’s literally a pain.
Mass shootings everywhere?
Death simply is not fair.
The world according to Trump?
Don’t take me for a chump!
Today’s news in general?….
In life’s grand scheme, seems so ephemeral.
The answer is plain to see — without a doubt,
The question has to be: What NOT to talk about?

So, if we’re not going to talk about love,
Or any of the other subjects above….

“No use talking at all” may work for us….
But who’s to say others won’t make a fuss?

All this talk in my head — is it nothing more than that:
A matter of chatter, simply talking through my hat?
If so, saying what we think is absurd….
But I think not. You have my word.
