imagine a really gross pregnant lady


1. The silence was pregnant
Smelled of wine and cheap perfume
Faces turned ugly
When she stepped into the room
So I gave up my seat
So she could get off her feet
The silence was pregnant.
v. And you can talk about the birds and the bees
Sing about the wind through the leaves
It donʼt change the fact
That sheʼs elephantine
The silence was pregnant.
2. Discomfort and disgust
The shoes come off her feet
Eyes wide with distrust
We sit; but no one speaks
So I open the door
To keep our eyes off the floor
The silence was pregnant.
3. Hʼor d'oeuvres were eaten
Crumbs stuck to her chin
Greasy and smelly
Whyʼd we let her in?
Her hairʼs stuck in tufts
Baby power, dandruff
The silence was pregnant.
