Let’s have a chat.
I understand you are taking her to the movies.
You will drive at the speed limit.
You will operate the vehicle
with both hands on the wheel at all times.
You will consider her
You will be an absolute gentleman.
You will have her home by 11 o’clock
that would be
It is currently
I will await your return
on the front porch,
at which time you will produce
two ticket stubs with the current date.
There will be no tell-tale fragrance
on anyone’s breath
Should you fail to appear
at the appointed time–
should you not arrive here by 11:01
I will call out the dogs
vicious foaming-at-the-mouth dogs
who trust me, mister
will follow your scent
with avenging zeal
And when the snarling beasts find you
and drag you back to my door
we will sit again
and have a chat.
Have a nice evening
