So You Say (2006) - Poem by David Joel Rodriguez

A hard day at work
tired and sweaty with a white shirt
to many things on my mind
a solution I was to find

I really wanted to go home
get things done on my own
she passed my desk a few times
my head kept asking me why

A few times you called my phone
I said the radio was on
I said I was on my way
what did you want me to say

She sat on my desk
asked why I hadn't left
one thing led to another
smearing my dirty collar

Why did it have to happen
asking where I've been
asking why I hadn't called back
I told you I had a flat

you detected a smudge on my shirt
In an instant you were hurt
I had no answer to give you
thats when I knew
our relationship was threw.
