An esteem attacked

I blow a kiss

I get a slap

I sing a tune

Please just clap


Palms together

Now add more force

More, please, more

Oh, that’s much worse


It shouldn’t be bleeding

That’s not right

Go wipe your hands 

On the inky tights


Did you hear me?

Not the gray pair

It’s still in the laundry

Having an affair


Is the blood gone?

No, don’t clap more

Your skin is too shattered

My god, you’re a bore


Just blow them a kiss

And get one back


It’s choking you? 

Dear, that’s not a kiss

That’s an attack

What are you looking for?
