Hey Mom Hey Dad
How are you
And I'm not bad
But if ya keep on asking
And sayin' things about that
About that, you should know
I don't like it when ya talk about that
But I don't tell you, I don't say no
When you say the dreaded, 'I'm impressed you could do (insert whatever I did)'
Though I hate when you talk about that to anyone!
But I still don't say no, I don't try to rid
You of that talk
Still I hate it and you don't know, you probably'll never know
That when you start, in my mind the thing I do at the very suggestion is balk!
So in my mind I'll be begging you to stop
But I'm not communicating clearly!
And trying to speak about it is a flop!
I'll be pleading
In my head
But you're not hearing--nor reading--
My face, my thoughts, my head
You don't see there
Nor that brick of lead.
