A man can't pretend
To understand
If he doesn't really understand
What he pretends to,
But what, in essence,
Is pretense, and who is to say
If it is or if it
Is not?
What if a man pretends
To understand,
But to you it's all
So real?
If I was to say to you,
Well, I don't really know what,
Would you assume pretense or
Would you think I was just
Born that way?
If a man pretends
To understand,
He must do it convincingly,
Or all his efforts may be
For naught.
