Double Meaning - Poem by Joe Hughes

'I'll do it much later',
Means 'Never at all'.
'I'll be there in a minute',
Means 'Perhaps by nightfall'.

'I'll fix it today',
Means ' Maybe next week'.
'I'll ring you tomorrow',
Means 'I think you're a geek! '.

'We'll admit you real soon',
Means ' We'll start with a scan'.
'I hear what you say',
Means ' I don't like your plan'.

'I'm feeling quite young',
Means ' I'm just middle aged'.
'I'm feeling upset',
Means 'I'm really enraged! '.

It's language we use
To give an impression.
It's a game that we play
With a lifetime of lessons.
