Conversation - has made a wrong turn
And forsaken - the genteel discussion
I’d taken - for granted this evening
I’m achin’ - For a fast getaway

Inversion - Of my lovely evening
Perversion - Best left unsaid
Coercion - Not in my nature
Diversion - Is more what I need

You have shown us
To deal with abrasion
Use novel evasion
You’re my patronus
You give me hope
With your nope nope nope

It’s easy - A beacon of hope
When I’m queasy - And need to escape
If words fail me - I call on your lesson
And I’m free - From one minute more

Bailing - May not be ideal
But failing - A polite excuse
Inhaling - Is key to the process
And flailing - Like Kermit the Frog


Racist ideas from your uncle
When are you both having children?
Why can’t you get a date? When will you graduate?
Writing is not a real job
Can’t you just try a bit harder?
Why don’t you dress more your age?
Contrails and GMOs, is this the life you chose?
Can I give you some advice?

Nope Nope...
