Wise old woman

The problem with

Wise old woman is they keep on dying or

They get ripe enough like seed pods,

Ready to crack open,

But instead they decide their just crackers.

so they staying in bed instead


or they spend too much time folding their recycling,

telling themselves that nobody needs them

that they really don´t know anything


maybe they were wrong all along

And so on and so on and so on.

But the problem is

We need need them.

More than anything

in this worl.


After all,

It takes time to make one

with egg and milk cartons and

a little bit of spit for glue.
