To Have That Kind Of Patience

If you didn't get it 'then'...
You are not going to get it 'now'.

'All you have to do is to explain to me...
How those cars can go back and forth,
Slow down when that light turns yellow.
And stops when it flashes to red!
To wait and speed off again,
When that light turns green.

What does 'walk' and do not walk mean?
Nobody walking on the sidewalk,
Is payng any attention.
And do those lights,
Have anything to do with them? '

How old are you now?

'I'm in my fifties...
Why?
I've been told I 'look' a lot younger.
So...
Help me process all of this! '

If you didn't get it 'then'...
You are not going to get it 'now'.
AND...
Even if I could,
You would not be getting 'it' from me.
To have that kind of patience,
Would be miraculous.
