Don't

Don’t look
Why not?
How can it hurt?

Don’t ask
Why not?
I want to learn

It’s done
It’s gone
Untied to you

I want 
The facts
What did he do?

Pretend
There’s not
A way to know

In times
Of yore
That would be so

These days
It’s there
For all to see

Just look
You’ll find
No mystery

Simply
A search
And follow clues

The lure
Is strong
Unearth the truth

But not
Because
You really care

What came
Before
You were a pair

The goal
When you
Construct the past

Is to
Predict
If yours will last.
