 ramblings and things

Brick Wall

May the Good Lord preserve me
From having one of those days
When folk appear to be listening
But dont hear what you say.
There they are, face as
Expressionless as a wall
And sadly you know
They didn't hear much at all.

Hey Ho that's life
And they really need to know
So take a calming breath
And give it another go.
At least you'll have tried
But down in your heart
You know they've only heard
Such a very small part.

And when they Facebook
And when they later tweet
And report a conversation
Only half complete.
No use getting upset
Or banging your head
Its the world of cyber slowly making
More progessively brain dead.

Take another breath, realise
That, although it isnt nice,
Sometimes it's necessary
To say things more than twice.
Its not necessarily certain
That they'll take any in at all
But with a bit of luck at least more
Will penetrate that brick wall.
