I got a lecture the other day.
I had not signed up for a class.
I didn’t pay.
But someone thought they needed to teach me
They wanted to fix something,
set something straight.
But then I realized this talk wasn’t about me,
it was about ego and control.
I wanted to walk away.
Today, I don’t remember the subject matter from the encounter,
but what I learned from this lecture has become quite clear,
when you want to set someone straight,
you might want to talk in your own ear.
