It hangs on my wall in a frame.
Its words are as clear as yesterday,
'If things don't change they stay the same.'
My French forebears had a saying
Grande Mama was heard to declaim.
Translated it chimes down to this day,
'The more things change the more they stay the same.'
Diametrically opposing points of view
Endorsing alike both sides claim.
Like them I am still undecided.
Heart says 'Change.' Head, 'Stay the same'
