It Surely Is
"It's not that we're denying the requests,"
the radio spokesman said,
And went on to explain exactly
how they were denying the requests.
It's not that we decry the use
of the expression, "It's not that" —
For most certainly we do not depreciate
and discredit such a sly expression
Whose usage pretends to say the opposite
of what is really meant.
But, how refreshing it would be
if we could just once hear,
"Yes, we are denying the request
because we hold this other issue dear."
Till then remember this:
(No matter who the speaker is)
When you hear "It's not that,"
you can be sure "It truely is."
