Should I?

The time is nigh

To pop the question

Because being a bastion

Of fragility

Has to change one day

You may

Find you like it…

Being engulfed in a fit

Of giggles

Because those muscles

Need to be exercised

And your anxiety exorcised

Even for just one moment

To release your mental torment

So go on give into that temptation

And trust me you will enjoy the sensation
