girl can’t help it

we got workmen coming in

changing windows doors

& she can’t help herself

riding my shoulder

as I see their eyes flicker

from me to her behind

& I’m making sure they’re ok

understand what it is we want done

& I’m waiting pensive still

for the words to come over my shoulder

something I know to be sure

will bother them as sugar in coffee

have you brought dust sheets

your own vacuum to clear up?

these poor bastards who have

not even started yet

offering assurances to her behind

riding my shoulder

even tho’ we have discussed this

her ability to piss workmen off

to leave it to me talk to the guys

but y’know the girl can’t help it
