Don’t mistake my kindness for anything more

It’s called courtesy

It’s called civilisation

It’s called mannerism

 

If I am laughing away your “joke”

If I am laughing away your “question”

Don’t be confused by my “entertainment”

It’s called diplomacy, after all

 

But if I say no – even with a smile

Just know that no means no

A diplomat may never say no, but a lady surely will

 

If you fail to respect that

Remember that respect is mutual

Don’t ever confuse my kindness for weakness

Remember, I’m a lawyer, after all
