Give Him An Inch

Give him an inch, He’ll take a mile
But he’ll only keep it a little while
A little while is all he needs
He took the flower and picked each petal
Convinced her that he was the kind to settle
But left only the thorns in the weeds

Yet she was stronger than he thought
And too well knew just what he sought
And he didn’t really want to go
Secretly she really wanted the same
And relished in this subtle game
The tactical to and fro

She went and found another
Who left him dead without much bother
She just left him laying there alone
And with that she ran
To be with the man
Who she wanted all along
