I speak in terms that simplify

what it is I want to say,

because I do not want my meaning

simply to fade by going astray,

why over complicate the facts

why use words others struggle with,

not everyone is academic

what’s the point in being polemic,

keep it simple, keep it straight

verbal gymnastics is not my way,

criticize me I don’t mind

I speak using my own words defined,

in a way that best suits me

and I am not worried how you perceive,

the way I speak, the things I say,

I am not shallow that way

call me simple because I simplify,

you will see no tears shed from my eyes.
