Fellow Baffled Ones,
Everybody needs a listener sometimes.
It’s grand to be trusted to be the listen-ee,
Umm the hearing-er-er,
Bother, the umm, friend who will listen.
Sometimes a friend won’t even know where to start.
You can be a good listener then just by waiting.
If you don’t know what to say to them, there’s no need.
To comfort most, be lost for words.
While you’re listening,
the grandest bear in all their world
Being who your friend can talk to
is mostly all a friend wants in the end.
