Sick Manners

Yutang Lin

Making extensive fuss over trivial matters,
Deeply deluded, unaware of its absurdity,
"Doesn't matter" struck right at the point,
Still the same even heard but not listened.


Tiny matters focused to the point of being unforgettable. Stirring up gusts and waves without realizing its meaninglessness. Even when responded with "it doesn't matter," such a one could not be awaken due to deeply rooted delusive habits.
