They Really Get You Sometimes

 

They really get you sometimes
With their smiling eyes and juicy lies
Grooming you to accept crimes
While self-respect and dignity flies.

They really get you sometimes
Designing tricks to absorb your cash
Rubbing wounds with stinging limes
Transforming hope into cold wet ash.

What a diatribe of men
With their smiling eyes and juicy lies
Enticing you to open
While strangling the blossom so it dies.

Gestures of love: simple mimes
Sweet talk and promises only serve
Grooming you to accept crimes
Disguised as acts of passion and nerve.

They really get you sometimes
With their smiling eyes and juicy lies
Grooming you to accept crimes
While self-respect and dignity flies.
