Squeeze Gently into the Night

Dam it the pill should and it usually does
End the anxiety and bring on a buzz
Tension and fearing rolled up into one
Soothing the beast with an elephant gun

Now so and how so it doesn’t seem to work
Be careful, cautious, don’t blame or irk
He’ll be pleased to aim if you don’t aim to please
Don’t say freeze or you will trigger the squeeze
