Grief
by Henry Burt Stevens
3/16/2004

Grief is the result
of being unprepared

becoming prepared
may yield insight

resist the temptation
to share your finding

you'll become a
common troublemaker

you'll  be right
and they wrong

besides, they are
not interested

if you ever
see clearly.

enjoy the warmth
of your results

but don't let them show,
keep them to yourself.
