I Don’t Understand

Following on from Perfect, nobody is; all of us have something we don’t understand. But is that what’s meant when the words are said?

I don’t understand
Is said as
Declaration of
It is wrong
Not the meaning
Of words spoken

Never do they come
With an intention
To try

Not to learn
Instead dismiss
No being better
But mean belittling
An implication of
Being faced with
Idiot opinion

I don’t understand
How three simple words
Can be twisted
For such self
Grandiose schemes
Insular agendas
