I Cannot Make You

It is regrettable to me in this moment,
During which I am trying to relate to you
Some new and useful information
For the quest on which you have set out,
That I cannot make you think
While you listen—
Or, to put it metaphorically, that I cannot
Make you listen while you listen.

And so you will go your way,
And then come back again
After you find yourself in need
Of the information that I just now
Attempted to pass on to you.
