Why do we do that? Poem#11 National Poetry Month

wooden actorHave you ever read a sentence?
Well surely you have
But I mean have you read it backwards?
The possibility is  you have
at least tried it once
Why do we do that?

Have you closed your eyes?
Of course you have
But have you closed your eyes
and tried to do things
Like have you tried to act like you were blind?
Why do we do that?

I am sure you have looked at your poop
I don’t mean every time you poop
At least once or a few times or even often
Just to see all is fine and how much you pooped
I know; not as much as you have looked in the mirror
But you must surely have looked at your poop
Why do we do that?

Have you lusted someone you should not?
I mean just for the heck of it
and No one knows about it
It has been your own little secret
And you even amazed yourself
when you met them next
You acted like nothing ever happened in your mind
Why do we do that?

There are many things we do
Not everything we do has a reason
But if you think about it you will know
Some things are quite natural
Need no explanation; they just happen
But it is interesting to think
Why do we do that?
