New title, Won’t Be Long, by JR Solonche & a thanksgiving poem

A progression in verse by way of decreasing duration ie. length of lines and numbers of words -while the purport remains provocative, humorous, poignantly astute.

THANKSGIVING DINNER
 
 Over the coffee cold in the coffee cups
 
Over the conversation cold in the conversation cups
 
Why do these people call
 
They want help
 
They want an answer
 
They want solutions
 
Everyone behaves irrationally
 
The most intelligent
 
The most rational
 
They all do the dumbest things
 
Thoughtless things
 
Irrational things
 
So what do you conclude from that
 
Everyone behaves irrationally
 
Is there any other conclusion
 
Hey, this coffee is cold
