Fight and Words

Look, I would never say that.
Well, not use those exact words
but it’s pretty obvious
that our little contest
was not exactly fought fairly.
I mean, come on…

You were totally moving
more than just your thumb
to position your hand
into a better position
and you absolutely started maneuvering
before we finished the starting count.

I didn’t say that.
The word “cheater” never escaped my lips,
did they?
I did not once claim
that you lied
or intentionally broke the rules, did I?
I’m not saying that.
I’m just saying that, well,
I think it’s kind of obvious what I’m saying,
I guess, if you know what I’m saying.

You suck at Thumb Wrestling.

No, it’s all right.
It’s fine.
I didn’t want those Alexander the Grapes anyway.
You keep them,
they’re so important to you.
They’re too sour for me.
