Don’t take my word for it


You’ll have to take my word for it:


All this not worrying

Is really stressing me out.

Though evidence against the thought

Is now quite overwhelming.


To try to put it into words:


I didn’t mean that truth

I was telling some other truth;

Though now I can’t stop lying

At the point I no longer need to


My words were quite specific


I very clearly stated-

‘A cup of tea would not be unpleasant.’

I obviously didn’t say

That I wanted a cup of tea


So listen very carefully


Take heed and mark my words.

But now I can’t believe what I’m hearing

A derisory six out of ten

Is that all you think they are worth?
