A Brush-Off - Poem by John Thorkild Ellison

I've listened to your hype
And it leaves me cold,
You're simply not my type,
I'm much too old
For you in any case,
And though you've got a pretty face
You've got to realise
I've seen right through your lying eyes
And I'm not impressed -
You've put me to the test
But I'm not about to compromise
And end up in your bed -
In spite of what you said
I think I'll have a cigarette instead!

    to hoist a new color of light in our life
    You've got to realise
    I've seen right through your lying eyes
    And I'm not impressed -
    You've put me to the test
    But I'm not about to compromise (Report) Reply
