There They’re or Not There

We can say
consolingly
“there, there”
which is neither
here nor there
in relation to
the meat
of my matter
that we can also say
“they’re there”
to indicate
where a group
of them
are situated
but to say
“there they’re”
is definitely
verboten
therefore, now
I turn to German
to make sense
of my linguistic world
