Back Off

Beware of those who smile too much

Then invite themselves when uninvited,

Who proffer that unwanted touch

Whose every move is unrequited.

You feel discomfort in their presence

Shadows hide behind their eyes,

Evil lurks within their essence

However hard they feign disguise.

Let your instinct lead the way

Follow that feeling, that inner voice,

Don't indulge the games they play,

Back off... while you have a choice.
