Ode to No

I've just finished reading Sarah Knight's "F**K No". It's a brilliant comprehensive guide for those who find it difficult to decline an invitation or request which then has a detrimental impact. How to say no to things that you can't do, that you shouldn't do and best of all, that you just don't want to do. It inspired this little ode ....



An invitation to a party to which you don’t want to go

And it’s not your idea of fun to run 5K through snow

An upcoming hen do for which you don’t have the doh

It’s OK, it’s fine to just say “no!”


When joining that committee impacts your mojo

And an impending project makes you feel low

A request for help from a person who never says “hello”

It’s OK, it’s fine, to just say “no!”


When your family expect favours in constant flow

And a random request will upset your status quo

When expectation is that of course you will go

It’s OK, it’s fine, to just say “no!”


Or... "F**k No" – if you’re Sarah Knight.
