I could ask how many lovers you’ve had
or when the last time was that you cried.
I might pry into your innermost fears
and damage your psyche or pride.
I could be more discreet–just tell you you’re sweet
or complement mother and dad.
But that would not be very honest of me
’cause I’m just not a sensitive lad.
How about you? Brutally honest, too?
Don’t think that you’re putting me off.
I doubt there’s a thing that could drive me away!
Was that a choke or a cough?
Could we do this again–tonight or the next?
I don’t need much of your time.
I guess at the least I should just ask your sign;
I’ve already told you mine!
