It is what it is,
and was what it was,
None of it makes sense
and that’s just because.

I can’t tell you why.
I really don’t know.
Is it just because,
or is it just so?

No need to worry
if it’s right or it’s wrong,
just heed these few words,
don’t ponder too long.

For if you don’t know,
there was never a doubt.
It’s just one of those things
to make you think about.

I’ve now said enough,
I won’t give it away.
It’s not mine to tell,
so I really can’t say.
