So… – Maxine Emmett

Yet elucidation, I need explanation!

I wrote a lot as a child and as an English tutor, have just started tutoring someone who is showing talent and it’s reignited my passion!

So….

So, I want to know why….

Why, Why, Why?

Rhetorical yet symbolic, it is my addled mind that is determined to spin,

Yet calm, I crave placidity!​

So, I want to know who….

Who, Who, Who?

Reasoning and sensibility seem in a state of utter complacence,

Yet elucidation, I need explanation!

So, I want to know where….

Where, Where, Where?

Locality and Bearings make my brain cells shiver, 

Yet logical organisation, I prefer sequentialism!

So, I want to know when….

When, When, When?

Continuance and Perpetuity are omnipresent,

Yet finality, I prefer cessation!
