Small talk

I'm just no good at small talk
Narrow and bijou
Microscopic and minute
Sorry, what do you do?

Dinky winky, little, dwarf
Incy wincy, klein
Matchbox, kneehigh and compact
Can I top up your wine?

Teensy weensy, minimal
Teeny weeny, wee
Itsy bitsy, miniscule
Would you like a cup of tea?

Baby, mini, miniature
Shrunken, titchy, speck
Narrow, nipper, iota, mite
Get naked? What the heck!

Pint-sized, trifling, piddling, runt
Meagre, puny, shrimp
Insufficient, paltry, scant
I feel a little limp

Undersized, petite, inadequate
Stunted, diddy, slight
Inferior, negligible, diminutive
Not a pretty sight

Wait…adequate, significant
Considerable, fine
Huge, enormous, massive, great
Let's go back to mine.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
