I don't understand What you are thinking. I don't understand Why you are drinking. I don't understand The heavens above. I don't understand This thing called love. I don't understand Violence and death. I don't understand This most foul of breath. I don't understand The poverty of thought. I don't understand If I've been sold or bought. There are so many things That I don't understand. It seems that my life Is getting out of hand.

Very powerful poem, you can see different people whom may be speaking, and can see different imagery.... very well done.

Would it be rude for me to point out that I don't understand why the poet think so much?

Not rude at all. I write about a lot of different subjects.
