So Simple

by Bertie Koller

I cannot understand
what I cannot believe
nor can I change
what I will not let be

there’s nothing so simple
as the circling sun
yet who circles who
when it’s said & done

I cannot obey
what breaks but won’t bend
nor can I challenge
what I will not defend

there’s nothing so simple
as nothing at all
yet how big is nothing
or is it small
