Who, what, when, where -- my asking Why Poem

John Moore, a Getty Images photographer

Now I'm asking why

Who, what, when, and where
We're supposed to ask
Now I'm asking why

Why why do we make
Little babies cry
Child needs her mama
Why why do grown men
And younger boys grope
Women not secure

Who, what, when, and where
We're supposed to ask
Now I'm asking why

Why why is it smart
To mistreat the pets
Still they love you much
Why why there's no blush
Discriminate race
Religion ethnic

Who, what, when, and where
We're supposed to ask
Now I'm asking why
Why why folk forget
--Uncivilized-- to
Love one another

If only there was someone to ask. Somewhere to get the answers. But there isn't, we are only left with questions.

You have given voice to the senselessness of the times in which we live.. these questions are so on point. Thanks for this one, Jim.

Powerful questions, and ones we should all be asking

The question i can find no satisfying answer for, Jim. I resonate with your poem.
