There Goes

Hello there .

Hey, you over there .

Yes, you. You can stay over there if you prefer.

There is something I want to tell you.

Can you hear me? Can you see me?

Yes, you. Look over here, because I am not over there .

Okay. Now listen. Here goes.

There is a problem with you being there .

But hey, no sweat, if you want to be where you are.

It would seem there would be less friction with you being there .

Oh, sure, I've tried to tell you that. But there seems to be a disconnection.

Did you hear that? You don't believe that?

You, there ....I'm here... still here.

There has got to be a way for you and I to connect.

Ever heard the saying, "no man's an island?"

There .you go.

Shall we play a game?

Knock, knock.

Who is there ?

They Are Used to Their Usage

Excuse me!

It seems that there has been a mistake!

They're ....


I mean they are ....they are being expected.

There seems to be a miscommunication between their people over there .

Their thoughts can be muddled, here and there .

I wonder why?

Can there be a chance for them to learn their 'A B C's" better?

Supposedly, things can appear with a 'click' in this day and age.

But they're slow to pick up.

Nah, not slow. Perhaps confused.

Okay, we can follow what they write sometimes.

But their confusion can confuse their readers.

Some, not all. Poor, some.

There, there ....

      Gotta salute you! Oops, that's got to... There has got to be a gadget when their misuse slaps the living daylights out of their confusion. You're on a roll, woman.

      There, there, can’t you see they’re their own worst enemies? Their grammar was learned here and there, they’re really not to blame. They’re confused and there isn’t a thing you can do to repair their errors. Hehe!
