Good day to you squire
Mind if I inquire
Would you play with me
I’m antique
But I’m cheap
Could you be the friend I seek
To have me and to hold me
To safeguard and console me
With horizons set to get uncompromisingly bleak

 

May not look much on first sight
A mere trinket of contrite
But there’s so much more to me than meets the eye
Pray tell
Do I affright
Is that your pulse I hear racing
My design that has you pacing
But I’m just a simple
Plaything

 

 

 

 

I’m waiting…
You can touch me
I don’t bite
Well, persuade me and I might

 

Guess you’ll have to find that out
Which begs the question of devout
Could you bear to be without me
Would you dare to disavow me
Share your thoughts
And I’ll share mine
As it is soon to be our
Playtime

 

I can sense polite reduction
Felt it right since introduction
Do you find me uninviting
Is that why discomfort’s spiking
Could it be that these black eyes of mine are not quite to your liking
I’m damaged goods after all
Only kind to be cruel
It’s your call and your fall I’m enticing

 

Do you trust the stifled air
Darkest recess of your lair
Would you lend me pride of place
Bow your head and say that prayer
Wake up in the dead of night
And I might be right there
To provide tired eyes their everlasting stare

 

Drown that frown
As I play nicely
And relay that most concisely
Not to say
I won’t fillet you
Should you not please me
Precisely

 

Just a warning
Every rose has thorns
Jagged ivy barb that scorns
Given just cause
I could end you where you slumber
Be forewarned, for you would not discern me lumber

 

 

 

 

Not the time or place to scold you
And, besides
Already told you
I play nice
Oh, and a little sage advice
Do not make me say it thrice

 

So what do you say
Am I steal of the day
Your favourite piece of bric-a-brac
Or knick-knack of distaste
Take me home
It would not pay to disown
Good to see you’ve been so bold
ITEM SOLD

So, this is home then
Shrewd investment
Expert culling
Why so glum then
Why so sullen
Seems we just ran out of daytime
And by my estimations, does that not make it our playtime

 

Far less charm
As I impart
Third hand advice
Told you once now
Told you twice

 

I PLAY NICE!
