(Flattery Pt. 1)

She says she wants a flatter stomach,
a smaller waist and bigger breasts.
She anticipates compassion
but anything I might suggest
could be employed as ammunition,
twisted words to battle feuds…
She says she wants a flatter stomach
because she hates how hers protrudes.
I satisfy a fast food craving
as she concerns herself with fat…
“Does my belly turn your stomach?
Would you prefer it to be flat?
You never tell me what you’re thinking!
Does my arse look big in this?”
I tell her that she’s being stupid
and that my ardour still persists
to grow at rates unprecedented,
unprecedented, strong and true…
She says she wants a flatter stomach
and that I ought to want one too!
