When a man explains to a woman

In a patronising tone

Assumes she doesn't know

She can't work it out on her own

Casts a new light on explaining

When an ex explains, explicates to placate an ex

Honey, why do you think I had to go?

Then complaining takes on a new meaning too

Come on we can work it out

If you see it my way

I'll spell it out for you!
