The Tar Baby Tango

I just thought that you should know

That I will surely punish you

By refusing to allow

You to do this thing for me

That I really need of you

unrequested, just for me.

And if, somehow, 

you fail to read 

the message scrawled 

between the lines 

or fail, likewise, 

to read my mind

Then that will only prove to me

That you never really cared.

Now bearing all of this In mind

I ask you now,

May I have this dance?
