Floors covered in eggshells
are harder to sweep.
They slice your bare feet
and grow ten layers deep.

You have to be quiet
so as not to annoy
or you're risking the wrath
of an overgrown boy.

He keeps the floors covered,
it's what he does best.
He browbeats and screams,
never gives it a rest.

You have to find courage
from deep down inside
to escape all the madness
and jump off the ride.

As soon as you leave him
the real fun begins.
He stalks and he threatens
determined to win.

But hang in there, girlfriend,
for one day you'll meet
the man who will treasure
each scar on your feet.
