pride can be such a shallow beast

the man wants help fill in forms

talk to the man in court

& I say we can do this

but I need the full story

just lay it out like it

or maybe was back then

otherwise we go in there

they ambush on what they call facts

& he stumbles over words

checking out how I care about him

aware he doesn’t come out well

like I’d be surprised about this

or maybe about him

& how to say I don’t care?

even the lowest snake

deserves some defence

even of it is another snake

doing the talking

like me

we all got shame

just that some hide it better

than others

if we could have done better

we would have
