Daily Prompt: Elicit


Now what does that actually mean to anyone ? Elicit values is the only context I have ever heard it in, and what does that mean. God only knows. I reckon it’s what one believes about life, and how others should behave.

That’s okay she said, whatever you come out with, it’s alright by me
As we’re meant to be together forever, see
