Simplistic But True

 Sometimes the deepest questions elicit the easiest truths.

   Simplistic, But True

Teddy Roosevelt once said:
“Where you are, with what you have, do what you can”.
Ted said, “Do!
And I, concur with Teddy’s view.
Do you have one more solution?

Complex issues may have layers,
Many sayers.
Sometimes there are no clear answers
Than the ones as thin as matzos.*

Nothing’s oversimplified and shallow,
But to find the road to follow
Shows how tiringly long and narrow
The right way can be:
Always simple but not easy.
*a crisp biscuit of unleavened bread, traditionally eaten by Jews during Passover: a box of matzos
