Those Who Mean Most (The Mockery)

Location

I

“Nothing is set in stone;

besides, I don’t even know what I want.

I don’t care about your hopes and dreams;

my needs matter so much more.”

 

II

“Doing dishes;

it’s supposed to come naturally for a girl.

I never give you praise as is, so while I'm at it,

let me step all over your self-esteem.”

 

III

“I love you for who you are,

and it’s alright to be weird.

It was just another gay joke;

why are you so offended?”

 

IV

“I like it, but I think you can do it better.

However, you can figure it out by yourself.

I’ll watch you drown in the meantime.

What do you think that symbolizes?”
