ask


ask me how
ask me when
when can i say
but what only that i know
who may you know
to be what i am
what has happened
one after the other
what more can i ask
what more can i say
but that which i know
what do i know
but what that i have said
to say i know
is to say i know
would that be right to say
or who am i to say
which is right or wrong
ask me how
ask me when
so what do i say
