how I told it

soft piano slide

I let you down

not being the man

you wanted me to be

& your version

techno blast

I was a rotten beast

foul to the core

though I did my best

not calling out names

telling stories

about the shitty stuff

you got done

you beat me black & blue there

sharp sneaky sucker punches

& I don’t hold higher ground

just a dirty mirror

I can peer into

not see the sainted one

just a fella living day to day

looking for the sun

while you paint the backdrop

any way you want to
