But who’s looking out for my safety?

The more I accept from you,
The more I am compelled to offer,
Your generosity astounding, and
Unmatched in my lifetime, the
Simple gifts you give, time and
Energy mean so much, coming
From you, you’re so sensitive and
Expressive, what you’ve taught me
About life and love speak volumes
About the person you are, and
The couple we could be, I want to
Take you down to the boardwalk
And show you off, that’s what I’d
Like to do, but you have to understand
We can’t.  After what I did to that
Rollerblader with a stick of Crisco
And my left stilt, they’re not going to
Let me anywhere near the promenade again.
