Clear as Mud

Clear as Mud

I already know  
What you're looking for
But I make you ask 
Over and over again
Each new question
Phrased slightly differently
Until you ask me precisely
What you want to hear

But I must confess 
The clarity you gain
Is an illusion
The answers I give 
Are lies
Because I know they're 
What you need

  1. Fascinating write .. I may have been guilty in my past.

    1. I can be deliberately evasive when it's a question I don't want to answer. I don't lie necessarily, but I don't make things abundantly clear either.
