Do Not Ask Me Out on a Date

Skeptical,

About the first words out of your mouth

I am not antisocial

But I am not a fool either

So you have five minutes

To sell me your story

For I know the facts will be limited

By the fairy tale will be great

I am sure someone has complimented

You about your smile or your eyes before

But what is behind those

To impress me

I wish I had been born yesterday

For it would make this song and dance easier to digest

Yes, I am skeptical

But I have a cupboard full of snake oil and I am still dying a little each day
