The Pleasantries
November 2nd, 2014 by Coral

My dearest friends, the pleasantries,

every evening ought to begin with,

Words and gestures in falsified ease,

rarely sincere, most often dispensed with.

“What a nice dress,” “how do you do?” “fine,”

How often are these truly meant?

So tedious, boring, and hardly heart felt,

Misnamed are they, then, since they be not pleasant?

But socialites dictate they must be in place,

and who are we to know better?

So we’ll smile and nod till we’re blue in the face,

And talk tonight of our fine weather.
