Unknown by Andrew Evzona


Unknown is an, especially, interesting word
Sometimes, it's used when it's most absurd 

You can tick the box 'unknown' for your gender
Some are not sure whether to tick a him' or 'her'  

There are so many situations where it may arise
No-one's certain to know when anyone dies 

Travelling far out in space is a mystery too
So many galaxies unknown to me or you

The reason some tragedies happen can be unknown
Whether it's a virus, a murder or encountering a drone 

Sometimes, the word appears on your mobile phone
Someone calling you will just show as 'unknown'.
