Tender Heart

 

 

 

 

 

 

You mustn’t say what hurts his tender heart.

However true it is, it isn’t right.

You mustn’t exercise satiric art.

You mustn’t say what hurts his tender heart.

He likes to think he’s principled and smart.

He will not see the sharp, unfriendly light.

You mustn’t say what hurts his tender heart.

However true it is, it isn’t right.

 

 

 

–Tom Riley
