If you could maybe
for a change
take a breath
and think about what you’re doing
before you’re doing it
just act out after you’ve considered
what the repercussions of the act might be
and imagine all the dominoes falling
in all their possible permutations…
If you used that evolutionarily developed brain
the way you are almost certainly capable of
don’t you think
things might go
a different way for you?
Think about the answer.
I can wait.
