Bite Me

Honey you done used me up
Chewed me up
And carelessly spit me out

Now several years passed
And I see you again
You all smiles
You offer me the chance
To help you out
“Come on
Don’t you wanna be my friend?”

I say,

Honey you done used me up
Chewed me up
And carelessly spit me out

I say,
“Thanks for the lesson
I now pay attention
And no longer work for momentary smiles
And long-lasting sneers

Honey you done used me up
Chewed me up
And carelessly spit me out
So I say, Nope
I don’t care what you want”
And I smile back

But you’re not upset
(At least you don’t show it)
Your eyes glaze over a second
And you’re instantly off
Looking for another ‘friend to help you out’

And I wonder
Do you ever get the chance
To brush your teeth
Between victims?

    Actually, I'm the she and he's the 'biter'...a former student and why I retired a bit earlier than I had planned. Thanks. Dunno where you live; but it's sleeting tonight here in Michigan. So I wish you warm thoughts. And don't let the wind bite...KJ
