The Dare

Barbara, I challenge you
This dare is just for you
Pour this drink into a glass
Then have a sip or two

Barbara, I dared you
You must see it through
Just follow the directions
I already gave to you

Barbara, trust in me
It will not hurt, a lot
Or are you just afraid
Like I've always thought?

Barbara, come on
It's just one little drink
It will not make you drunk
If that is what you think

Barbara, I can't believe
You just dumped that on me
And in the common area
For everyone to see

Barbara, I'm sorry
For trying to force you
Into drinking alcohol
Now, aren't you sorry too?
