Every day we talked about the weather,
The local crime, celebrities, and prices,
Condemning young delinquents and their vices--
No hope to get to know each other better.
Our whole relationship was on the surface,
From petty little unimportant dealings.
We really should communicate our feelings--
Connect on different levels, with a purpose.
To shatter this mirage of conversation,
I wanted to express my deep convictions--
And let you know I’d hear your contradictions,
And not pass judgement on our deviations.
“I hate Obama! Socialism! Lies!”
And now, you never look me in the eyes.
