UNPLEASANT PLEASANTRIES

Heartwarming things are like rains in drought
Ho ho ho ho, ha ha ha ha
Can cancel some hi hi hi hi, eiii iiii yieeee, bueee!
I know
Still,
…there are pleasantries that are unpleasant
And register their disgust on minds
…horrifying hearts
…closing eyes
…harming tongues
Check your pleasantries to spare someone an unpleasantness
…crashing your honour into their dishonour

II
That smiles are contagious
…does not mean showcasing green furniture with yellow slimes
…nursing nausea
Won’t it behead someone’s appetite
…and force some intestines from draining their chambers
…through mouths?
Check your pleasantries to spare someone an unpleasantness
…crashing your honour into their dishonour

III
That laughter is contagious
…doesn’t mean monstering sounds
…uncalled
Won’t it sound vein-touching-in-head alarms?
Who needs comfort from that strangeness?
Check your pleasantries to spare someone an unpleasantness
…crashing your honour into their dishonour

IV
That you’re a great bedmatical chef
Does not mean go cooking
…on bodies which show no interest in your delicacy
Won’t that sound abusing alarms?
Check your pleasantries to spare someone an unpleasantness
…crashing your honour into their dishonour

V
Even comedians know their stages
And current executioners live for the cameras
So please check your pleasantries to spare someone an unpleasantness
…crashing your honour into their dishonour
Be no walking bother
Scaring with misplaced pleasantness
