Do you have a minute? That’s all I’ll take today.
I have a problem with myself that just won’t go away.
I’ll give you an example. See, this is how it goes.
I need some information so I ask someone who knows.
My hitch is in the listening. It’s something I can’t do.
If you ask me what they said, I won’t have a clue.
My mind wanders off and as I wait for it’s return
I forget to listen…and therefore I don’t learn.
It isn’t that I intend not to give my full attention.
I know it makes me look as if I’m in the fourth dimension
I’ve often been told that I’m a little too intense
And if I think about it, that makes a little sense.
I’ve searched for remedies and I’ve even tried a few.
I hate to report there has been no big breakthrough.
I tried meditation and it just put me to sleep
If I journal my thoughts, I only laugh or weep.
I drank mocha latte’s and took a yoga class.
Nothing seems to help. I’m at a huge impasse.
My reason for sharing this isn’t too obscure
I’m hoping against hope that someone knows the cure.
One Week Later
I think I found the answer and it’s in a little bean
I can’t listen long when I’ve had too much caffeine.
