Friendly Advice

We sit here over afternoon tea Your lecture starts, all about me There’s no thought in your words As you stuff in more cake Your advice is absurd And concern so fake With cream on your chin You pry, rake and grin I watch your harsh tongue linger As you lick your sticky finger Now the cake has all gone, your job here is done I sit bloated with lies, numb and dumb You smooth your skirt over fat sweaty thighs And we rise to say our goodbyes As you disappear with your self-righteous view Set to interfere in pastures new I wonder dear friend, what would I do Without you?
