You Dont Really Want To Know, Do You?


Why Im happy for my daughters to wear revealing dresses: Mother says she wants her girls to be proud of their bodies


you dont really want to know, do you

the thoughts I have I must now destroy

now I have seen a woman such as you

in truth, my response to you is as a man

but if youd rather I not respond as a man

why so carefully array your body as bait


if you protest my eyes, why be their feast

if you resent my thought, why be its seed


you cant in honesty say that youre not

your selfie leaves too little of you unknown

yet leaves who you are to the imagination

you advertise, do you then despise the sale


would you see your innocence transgressed

should a man respond as his nature calls

would you say your glory had been insulted

should a man respond as his God decrees


You Don't really Want to Know, do You?
