Don’t butter me up, baby
I am not a whole wheat toast
I am not your raisin bagel
nor charcoal chicken roast.

I am not a chunky duck
or a lollipop pop you suck
I am not your honeybun
or sweet potato baked well-done.

Don’t butter me up, baby
don’t flirt if you don’t mean it
I’m not your bag of soggy seeds
I am the rose amongst the weeds.
