STICKS AND STONES

Your words are meant to sever
…my self-esteem and will
But Honey, you could never
Get a rise from me

Iím sorry if youíre bitter
But thatís the pill you choose
Your efforts ill-delivered
Wonít get a rise from me

I donít mean to disappoint you
Unscathed by your attacks
You should learn to make a point to…
Breathe Ďfore you react

Inflicting verbal daggers
How dare you waste my time
To kid yourself and think that I
…would listen on my dime

Your message never met my ear
Just words lost to the atmosphere
The desired effect, you ainít goní get
Canít get no rise from me

Youíre wastiní your time
To think that on my dime
Youíre gettiní a rise from me

Youíre out of your mind
To think that Iím
…beginning to rise, Honey

The desired effect, you ainít goní get
Canít get no rise from me
The only effect you could ever expect
…is a loss of respect, Honey!
