There Are Those…

There are those who are completely porous beings,
so porous, in fact, that that which enters
passes right through. This is the type that
just doesn’t get it and asks, “What the hell?”

There are those who are semi-porous beings;
all goes in and some stays and most
passes right through. This is the type
that gets some of it and says, “That was swell.”

There are those who are sort of semi-porous beings;
all goes in and most stays around for the
better or worse. This type forms strong opinions
and is quick to say flatly, “Go To Hell.”

There are those who have been porous and
semi-porous beings and who now just
spit back most of the stuff that does get in.
This type has been around the block and to hell.

There are those who are semi-impervious beings
having been there, done that. They know what
to let in and what to let bounce off the shell
and are surprised sometimes and say, “Do tell!”

Then there are those who are now completely
impervious beings having been there, done
that and when it all hits the shell, they just
smile and say haplessly, “Oh, well.”
