For The Defense

Post by audiofool » Thu Jun 22, 2017 1:36 am

At the risk of being unpopular
it's no risk at all
I'm calling a spade
a spatula
and reeling in the haul

I'm calling you a liar
if the rumor is true
I'm half the man
I once was
just standing next to you

intelligence
incompetence
all I have to declare
this armor-plated heart
ripped out
smashed beyond repair

at the risk of causing offense
your defense is cut-rate
I'm giving you
to the count of three
to pencil in the date

you can no longer
avoid me like the plague
I'll infest your nightmares
and rise
to hang you in the Hague

I demand redress
for every unjust action
a kiss alone
is sufficient
to put my bones in traction

intelligence
incompetence
back to square one
collecting your due
a lawyer named sue
somebody's idea of fun.
