I once knew a person
Who I just couldn’t get along with.
He made me feel small
And he made me teeth my grit.
I tried and tried and tried
I even laughed at all his jokes.
But nothing changed the fact
That he made me ears from out of my smoke.
You’re ordinary, he told me wordlessly.
Nothing you do makes a difference.
I haven’t seen you come up with one good idea,
Not even an opinion that didn’t come from sitting on the fence.
I fought and fought and fought.
That’s not true at all, I tried to tell him,
Look! I can do everything you want me to do!
And I fell tirelessly to his whim.
But it wasn’t just about me.
I was quite fond of his heart.
And every heart deserves a chance,
To be loved without being picked apart.
I was sure if I waited long enough,
Things would start to change.
All it needs is love, they told me-
Sang it till the end of the tape.
I mentioned this to someone close,
And they laughed at the absurdity of my story.
Tell me, do you also negotiate with the heart of the peanut
When you have a peanut allergy?
