Straw men and problems

His hair was yellow, a piece of straw sticking out the side every which a way standing tall and mute, not a word; just looking cute. life's problems not being faced left to their own, unattended, drifting like a straw cast in the wind, wonder why this is considered a sin? heartaches and worries all about, you see - but no one to solve them, but you and me. that's all around us do we see straw men and problems left for you and me. things get solved by doing and sometimes failing not by standing tall, mute and cute mistakes are made lessons are learned trial and error sometimes we get burned, that's how to face the world that we see; not being a straw man, but working together...just you and me.
