Do you
wonder why

It is elusive
That is the way it is
Cannot push your luck too far

" Knowing why will create but sadness"

A Clarity Pyramid (with a 1, 2, 3 5, 6, 7,8 syllable count)
A poem consisting of two triplets and a single line (7 lines in all).
The first triplet has 1, 2, and 3 syllables. The title of the poem is the one-syllable word of the first triplet, which is displayed in all capital letters. This line is followed by a two-syllable line, and then a three-syllable line, both of which clarify the definition of the poem, or are synonyms for the title.
The second triplet has 5, 6, and 7 syllables. Its design is based around a life event contained within the triplet which helps give a poetic view or outlook on the first line (title).

The last line is 8 syllables, and is in quotations as this line contains a quote that defines the first word (title).
