    LETS HAVE A CONVERSATION

    Lets sit, you and I, and discuss a psuedo-thesis
    Over a hot cup of Apple-Cinnamon tea and Marshmallow pieces
    And yammer about things that pass the time
    Saying what ever comes to mind
    Lets talk about science, sex, psalms, and satire
    Lets talk about things that we both admire
    Raising topics that brings about a comfortable leverage
    As we sip on our hot Apple-Cinnamon beverage
    Lets break the ice, and cut the tension in half
    Let me make a funny face that makes you laugh
    Lets talk about you, and your sense of style
    Lets talk about the things that make you smile
    Lets have a chat, you and I, and of the moment, get our fill
    Sippin' Apple-Cinnamon spice tea, and lets for the moment, chill
    And say words of verbal conservation
    Lets you and I have a conversation

    Lets talk about things that makes us happy glad
    Things that get on our nerves and makes us mad
    Air out our feelings, cool and vent
    Points of history and current events
    Lets talk about the places that we have been
    Speak of good times and sport a grin
    Talkin' 'bout this and that, time and again
    As I hand you a napkin to wipe tea from your chin
    Lets soak up the vibe of the happenings around us
    And talk about how it is that destiny found us
    How out paths crossed, how it is we met
    What it is we aspire to be and the goals that we've set
    Let us rhyme, reason, reminisce, and remark
    While on this verbal exchange, we embark
    Lets be free to say what is on our minds, without reservation
    One second blending in with another, as we have a conversation

    Lets sit and verbalize the contents of our minds
    I listening to you, and you to me, in kind
    Exposing falabilities, and fantasies
    Sharing intersecting realities
    Listening to your voice for rings of excitement
    Calm tones, somber vibes, and satisfactory delightment
    Dabbing my ear with the paintbrush of your voice
    That is as appealing to my hearing, as to my eyes the color turquoise
    Lets say things at the same time, though the moment be unrehearsed
    Then catch ourselves, and at the same time say "No, you first"
    As our inhibitions melt away, and we revel in release
    I watch you as you eat your last mashmallow piece
    With no worries,... no hurries, no rush
    I say to you "You're cute", and I watch you blush
    And you reply with a thank you, with a giggle in hesitation
    Lets finish the rest of our tea, and have a conversation

    Lets talk about ocean swells, summer breezes, and rainfall
    Family members, old aquaintances,... basketball
    Scented candles, incense,... palm trees
    Parties, fiestas,... Jamborees
    Lets talk about music, minutes, midnights and matenees
    Blue Monday's, New Tuesday's, and hot summer days
    Lines and stanza's from a poetic first
    And just for a moment, let the sip of our tea be a verse
    Lets talk about topics taboo and violated
    And switch to the topic of eye color and pupils dialated
    Jumping from subject to subject as time ticks on
    Not noticing temporal passage, conversing all night long
    Before long, the marshmallow pieces are all used up
    And the tea is but a stain on the bottoms of our cups
    But thats cool though, 'cause we continue rhyming over old revelation
    Lettin' the night slip into the early morn', engaged in a conversation
