Hypothetical Question
(by Shaun Sykes)

Composed on March 13, 1996


I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU
WHEN YOU'RE READY
KEEP YOUR WITS CRISP,
AND YOUR BRAIN STEADY.


HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION FROM
THE TOP OF MY HEAD
WEIRD SITUATIONS
THAT ARE BEST LEFT UNSAID.


HOW WOULD YOU REACT? WHAT
WOULD YOU DO - WHERE WOULD
YOU GO? ANSWER ME CAUTIOUSLY,
OR SLOW DOWN THE FLOW.


DEEPER MEANINGS, HIDDEN LOGIC
THERE MUST BE MORE TO THIS.
WHERE IS THIS GOING, AND WHY
MUST THERE BE A KISS?


WHO MAKES THESE QUESTIONS?
WHY DO YOU EVEN CARE?
EXPERIMENTAL WISDOM
ANSWER, IF YOU DARE!
