hollow promises

smooth-talking thomas is
always full of promises
but fails on
apparently he
never heard
there’s no reward
for empty words
but what’s a guy to do
he’s into
people pleasing
and i’m sure he
has his reasons
he’d rather
end a conflict
with a lie
than a solution
smooth-talking thomas
fails to see
how shallow hollow
promises can be
a yes-man with
no honesty
is not a man at all to me
