The Verb "To Be"

The verb to be we over use,
We claim to "be" and then confuse,
The things we do with who we are.
We mean it not as metaphor
And thus reduce ourselves. Refuse
To pigeon hole.  "To be" imbues
Significance, we change our views
Of who we are, so don't misuse
The verb to be.
We're complexity which argues
Caution, not summation, choose
Wisely, speak of that which you prefer,
Use do or have. Better by far
To be precise than to abuse
The verb to be.

The verb to be just gives Carte Blanche
To others to fill with prejudice,
With their idea of what it means
To be the thing you've said you are.
