We Don't Know Who They Are


We don't know who they are.

'Why?
Has anyone bothered to ask them?
Have you approached them to inquire?
Since you seem to be the one to express,
A curiosity and interest.'

No.

'Well...
Do they know what they do,
Attracts to get so much attention from you? '

I doubt it.
They act as if we are not here to be noticed.

'Don't be offended by my comments,
But...
Perhaps you and the others,
Are in dire need to find a life to live.'

Do you think they would notice us then?

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
