they will do what they will do

I lost expectations

for people to change

somewhere along this way of mine

learning

they will do what they will do

be as they are

employing the strategies

have got ‘em thus far

until they learn or find

a newer better way

to get what they want

I hear the plaint

the call of the jilted lover

I can change I can change I can change

& you know like me they can’t or won’t

to the cry of the midnight sinner

I can’t change I can’t change I can’t change

knowing that they will

but only after rock bottom has hit

their old ways no longer work

to get them what they want

until then

people

they will do what they will do
