Poem: But you can't

You can withdraw it
Marginalize it
Forget it
Hide it
Lie about it
Or deny it three times before the cock crows.

You can laugh about it
Weep about it
Shout about it
Hide it under a bush (oh no)
Sing the blues about it
Or sweep it under the rug.

You can get an ulcer over it
Commit suicide over it
Lose your family over it
Lose your shorts over it
Lose your mind over it
Or pretend it never happened.

You can dream about it
Run away from it
Rationalize it
Explain it away
Or drink it away
But you can't take back love.
