You'd find a needle in a haystack
That's what you told her.
Never bothering to find out why.
You said any form of curiosity is kokonsa*
Had you bothered to find out why,
She'd have said-
My mind rages with outcomes,
Probable meanings, twists
In what you say.
I ask because the storms must calm,
Because I could be wrong.
I ask because I can.

*Kokonsa means gossip in the Akan dialect.

"I ask because I can," most times questions are a way to learn the truth. Nice.
