Impress me

Don't try to impress me I know you all to well
the market trader look when planning a deal
I just know you are trying weighing the odds
to pull a fast one over some poor sucker

The sleepish look when you have cheated
flowers and chocolates by the score
tiredness the excuse as you roll away 
so don't try to impress me my dear

Yet you being a great father and friend
goes a long way towards forgiving you
the loving way you help others in need
all of this is what impresses me the most

    The good, the bad and the ugly without an inch to spare. All caught up inside one soul, not much room left inside there. :)

    I sure do like this one. I guess that title confused me. I thought he meant to enter a poem that would impress him. But I think this works well too , actually talking about impressing someone!!

    Knowing someone in a close relationship kind of slows down their ability to pull the wool over one's eyes doesn't it ...Enjoyed reading your creative work that speaks of truth..Thanks for the visit to my work..Sara
