Bird in Hand                                                      

            By asking why
            You really thought you loved me
            In response to why 
            You said you thought you did,
            I thought you knew that
            Knowing something well enough 
            Meant ignorance

            Causality demanded nothing less,
            So I surmised,
            Than using lots of energy
            To break things into smaller bits

            Until I learned the hard way that
            To split a hair could sometimes end
            In splitting up

            Instead of giving me the
            Bird in hand I sought
