I will name who Prince Charming took to be his bride,
Or when all planets will eventually collide.
You can quiz me on Pi to the 90th place,
Or let me solve Sherlock’s unsolvable case.

I will stand in front of leaders to make a speech,
Surround me with geniuses that I will teach,
Fill the Ark of Noah with two animals of each kind
Unfasten the shackles of Houdini’s bind.

Just don’t ask me if I love you.

Because then, my tongue will stiffen, my lips will lock
My eyes will shift, my knees will knock
My mind might know all mysteries untold
But my heart never speaks of the secret it holds
