The dreaded gifts and then you

It’s rectangle but it feels soft,
it must be another t-shirt, fuck!
It’s a perfectly square box,
oh please not Lynx Africa you schmuck!

It’s a triangle, what could it be?
I feel like this could be different, I feel such luck!
Triangular socks, why didn’t I guess?
My frown raises me above the ruck!
Now this one has your perfume,
I don’t care what it is, from you, it can’t suck!
I open the present… and I am so struck!
