Tell Her How I Feel

Es­capril 2019
Prompt: may flow­ers


I could give her a box of choco­lates,
That's the usual prac­tice,
I could give her a box of choco­lates,
But I fear ana­phy­laxis.

I could take her out to din­ner,
And tell her how I feel.
I could take her out to din­ner,
But I could as­pi­rate my meal.

I could give her May flow­ers,
But then what would she think of me?
I could give her May flow­ers,
But I might have a ner­vous syn­cope.

Upon con­sid­er­a­tion,
This pres­sure is giv­ing me the bends.
Upon con­sid­er­a­tion,
Maybe it's best to stay friends.
