I remember that day
in the car with Family
explaining, explaining, explaining
How the sickness grows
How it’s behavior is like a disobedient
child, a child who refuses to listen
Trying to explain plainly to a child
(and the adults, of course)
But does it make sense to anyone?
Don’t say too much, too vulgar
The other one is young, but not that much
“Growing” we understand
“Misplaced” makes sense
“sickness” we see.
but the totality? The cost and effect?
He says “But why would it do that?”
