Shut the gate this time would you!
Be aware you might actually need to use force-
You know itâ€™s manually operated.
Did you really need to leave the box open?
Destruction still spilling out of it
Like thereâ€™s such a high demand.
Turn and face, the music is waiting
Patiently for the dalliance you promised,
Your hand forced behind overlapped.
Itâ€™s not as if that look suits you
I prefer deeper shades of empty
To cover the holes protruding
While you skirt, and dress excuse like itâ€™s lamb
Instead of hard-boiled mutton
With just a dash of thyme.
It would do you good to hold your tongue
Acerb as it is, deliciously sharp
To wrap around your words.
And you thought it was over.
