Poems

I rue the day that I ever met you,
And deeply regret you getting close to me.
I cannot wait to deeply neglect you,
Deeply forget you, Jesus believe me,
You promised me poems.
You might have been my reason for livin’
I gave up ungivin’, gave up everything.
We were a right pair of believers
A couple of dreamers, so how come
You hate me?

You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems

26

You told the shaman, you told
the shaman about your exquisite
worries and now you’re enlightened.

How come you never told me, your
peasant, your common beggar?

So tell me, do I leave thy soul’s
pocket empty?

I expect homely pennies for your
homeless complaints; to live in me
payment is habitual!

So you talk to sages and witches and
they leave you with magic in your eyes,
yes, they put wands in your hand.

You better tell me something and
you better come with payment.

I am nothing but a man.
