Good for you
Well, good for you! I came to say, a fallback phrase Id gained
As fodder for the small talk when a conversation waned.
Whatever someone told me, I would Good for you! respond
Which seemed an affirmation of a fleeting, friendly bond.
No matter the occasion, it was Good for you Id quip;
But soon I came to realize it sounded trite or flip.
Determined to improve myself, to halt the phrase betray it
I vowed to kick the habit yes, no longer would I say it.
The person Id confided in now offered her review,
Consoling me with pitied look and saying, Good for you!
