When our father
didn’t want to answer questions
put to him by his pestering children
he would often say “We’ll see”.
That’s the way much of our future
has to be looked at.
Those of us who are impatient
can’t to anything about it.
News casters sometimes thrive
because their educated guessing
is fodder for the curious.
They can’t just say “We’ll see”.
They go on about it
and make their living
if their guessing
is compelling for the ear.
