The question arises - in high school - "how do I break up with...."
So, as a public service - may I present:

Handy break-up Senryus.
Pick one to quickly, cut that old
relationship cord


I'm sorry, What'd you say?
I can't hear you confused look
- we’re breaking up.

You’re the guy that
every school girl seems to want...
- today's their lucky day.

It's time we took
our relationship to the
previous level.

I still cherish the
initial misconceptions
I had about you.
The question arises - in high school - "how do I break up with...."
Softly, softly through the undergrowth
Padding through the reeds
Eyes fixed on the gazelle
As it blithely drinks and feeds

It knows nothing of my approach
It sighs, munching up its fill
Not a single sound my body makes
As I stalk towards my ****

Stupid lions intimidate
But I seem almost tame
Remember silence can be deadly
Roaring lions **** no game

Three things to know
Before going on a blind date

1. The layout of the restaurant and how
many exits it has

2. Making sure your "surprise" friend has proper directions and is reliable

3. How to go about filing a restraining order
Where is this book
Where can i find
It will encourage my growth
It stimulate my mind

This book will teach me
To become a competitive rival
It’s called Be Knowledgeable
The Strategy of Survival

Where is this book
Where can I find
It will encourage my growth
It will stimulate my mind

This book is the pen, the sword,
The tongue and the rifle
It’s called Be Knowledgeable
The Strategy of Survival

The enemies of my enemies are my friends
For peace is more efficient than hostilities
I share secrets with friends but secrets they remained
I speak only truths for truth is verifiable
Fools fight my wars for me, my hands unbloodied
Unseen, unknown, I am unattributable
But only as Friend to any and all

Sometimes it takes awhile
To learn the rules
And fully understand
A person's strategy

It could stir one in circles
Trying to decipher
The glazed look in their eyes
Or the pearls of sweath on their forehead

What reason for this madness
Is this an act of treason
Or lack of self-awareness
A lesson best riddled with duplicity

The final draw can only continue
With one's participation
But, it can be also deterred
By playing another hand.

Not too hot,
not too cold,
is this the strategy you wanted to behold?

In this case
I was luke warm
by all your harm.

I wouldn't say I was drowning  
or flying for that matter,
but you did make me sadder.

Now I've learnt
how you come and go
and I've learnt to say no.

From now on
I decorate myself with white
and wait for you to once again bite.

Take this pawn
And its cousin kings and bishops
Wood flecked
With grooves gnawed by time
As it becomes you.

I'm sorry I didn't give you a say
But this is where I'll stay
I'm not going to run
I can't fail everyone
With this plan
I'll end this where it all began
Bonus points if you catch what this is referencing!
