Why

We should be so encouraged,
To use the word "why" often,
For why is a word that has a place,
In every learning lesson, and
To the curious mind it will hasten;
Every time there is a problem,
"Why is this?" or "why is that?"
The word should often be asked,
So ignorance it can detract,
And knowledge can be compact,
For there is always frustration,
When not knowing the why,
Of things, events and situations,
Or rules that we must comply,
That are daily dropping by.
