Mirror

Experiment conducted socially
Exaggerating traits that men possess
So if they’re known for their diplomacy
Then they will hit me square with such finesse
For many tact is not a real plus
And humour is too often quite off key
So comments will be like a blunderbuss
I don’t know why but they will target me
For that is what I get from everyone
No subtlety I’m shot at from the hip
Of all the people here beneath the sun
My gift is I can loosen any lip
Reaction, take a look and you will see
All you are reflected back in me
