Oh, Sidney

Come on,
Oh, Sidney,
Why must you do this again?
We’ve been over this before;
It’s something that happened long ago.

Things were going great,
If not awesome,
If not amazing,
And it’s getting harder for me to understand.

I’m just trying to understand you.

I think about you all the time,
And after that,
Maybe I’ll do it a few times more,
Because then it will all start to make sense.

It’ll start to feel just right,
If only for a little bit.


I know I’m smart,
I just know it,
But you’re smart, too,
And that’s the problem,
And there’s no way around it.

Come on,
Oh, Sidney,
Let’s go for a drink,
My treat,
And maybe we’ll both forget.

Oh, Sidney.
