Too Clever

⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She needs a shoulder to cry on, an ear to bend,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but the means to your selfish end.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She wants her true love out, some new thrill in,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but reason to boast the win.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She feels it her prerogative to assume the worst,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but a lie needing to be rehearsed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She acts like the one she hit’s the one at fault,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but excuse to join her assault.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She plays along for now with what you’ve got,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but control of what you bought.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀She thinks it easy to leave the real thing behind,
⠀⠀⠀⠀which is to you but proof she’s already blind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Clever! So clever! Too clever by half.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Don’t make me laugh.
