April Drafts #7

Prelude To A Sequel of The Great Vowel Shift
                                                                          

3.

So there’s this detergent named Tact or Charm dumped in you
& you failed at your duty to be a washing machine

To defend the pessimistic flower weaker than a weed in a dump   
But if you keep giving advice, someday you’ll be able to take it 

& you failed at your duty to be a washing machine 
So you quit the job at the Gress nude beach between pro & con

But if you keep giving advice, someday you’ll be able to take it 
& this isn’t a complaint lollipop with a chocolate demand center 

So you quit the job at the Gress nude beach between pro & con
& share a laugh about skirting around the question of clothes                  

& this isn’t a complaint lollipop with a chocolate demand center   
Or flounder like a fragrance, like Elon Musk at a construction site 

& share a laugh about skirting around the question of clothes 
& the grace with which he sings “if civilization’s where I am”  

or flounder like fragrance, like Elon Musk at a construction site  
& the optimist scolding “you’re too afraid of going blind to see” 

& the grace with which he sings “if civilization’s where I am”
So there’s this detergent named Tact or Charm dumped in you

or the optimist scolding “you’re too afraid of going blind to see”
to defend the pessimistic flower weaker than a weed in a dump
