But I thought I hated that song.
I could swear I swore
I would never listen to that song again
and if I did
it was only after I’d pour lye down my ears
then doused them with Lysol
and finally turned the power off
of whatever device I was playing that song through.

I don’t recall quite what it was
that elicited such a strong reaction from me
but I remember distinctly
somehow that that was a song
that I did not like,
like, a lot.
Does it maybe have the same title
as another song
or sound exactly like another release
by the same artist
or perhaps came out
at the same time
as another song that broke my heart
or… I don’t know!

Why did I hate this so?
It sounds so catchy.
It’s got a great beat
and you can dance to it, and
Oh, that was dumb.
Oh, what the hell was that?

What in the name of all that’s unholy –
Yeah, I remember now.
