“I don’t want a lecture; please don’t shout it.

Just tell me what you think it means for me.

I don’t want to know too much about it –

just bottom-line it; the details bore me.

“I don’t want to hear, if it’s depressing.

Just say what’s immediately in store.

My plate is full, and it’s got me stressing.

I sure don’t want to load on any more.


“I don’t need to know too much in advance;

historical background’s not worth mention.

I don’t want to be blamed for ignorance,

but I can’t spare a lot of attention.

“Just give me the headlines so I can choose

if it’s gonna fit in with my world views.”
