Ever ask your partner if they want Chinese food for dinner,
They reply, “That’s fine”, now does lying make them a sinner.
Think back to every reply where someone has said “That’s fine”
They really mean, with no other options, acceptance they’ll resign.
When picking out wallpaper, a piece of jewelry or a special gift,
The word “fine” in the response, will not give the intended a lift.
Answer any question with “fine”, you have to realize its not great,
It’s neither affirmative or negative, that’s why its the word I most hate.
Go ahead use the word, say “She’s fine” because that’s fine by me,
Enjoy your gourmet dinner - alone, you can watch the fine scenery.
