Silence

The more I watch these people speak,
The less I want to say.  For each goes on
About their way, heedless of their audience.

So to the he who’ll not be swayed
or to the she who is all rebuke
How can I gain a good repute?
Only to reflect, calm, staid

Yes but me me mine I’m right they squeak
Neither listening nor hearing going on
My words would do the same, so I choose silence

  1. “heedless of their audience”: yep, it appears the art of listening must be a truly difficult skill since so few of us practice it appropriately or regularly. I will take heed.
