The only time someone wants
An explanation is when
They expect they won’t like it.
The rest of the time, their own
Take on you will do just fine.
They’ll explain themselves to you,
Of course, given half a chance,
And you should listen, and think,
How much their self-serving crap
Resembles that voice you hear
Prattling in your inner ear
Proudly explaining yourself
Every damn day of the year.
