getting what we don’t want

 

barmaid asks me what I want tonight

it takes every ounce of energy

not to ask her for what I really want

she gives what I didn’t really want

I pay her for things I didn’t really want

but asked for anyways

she wants something as well

but she will never ask me for it

and so we both go home alone
