We often create problems
That we’re incapable of solving
Unable to recognise.
This is one of life’s great inequities:
Those who create the problem
Often aren’t the best people
To solve the problem.
That burden falls to others.
In some cases (…and for particularly difficult problems) this is intergenerational.
For example, we must solve problems
Created by people who are long gone.
You and I will create quandaries today
For our distant descendants to deal with.
