no for i have changed
i have reached and turned
that corner up the lane way
out from comfort of the wood
that sheltered indiscriminate
surly lodger false entitlement
you must reach out and take
what you want will not be paid
without a price you know the allegory
man, you’re a boy and he’s a boy too
that’s not the point, not the crux
not relevant one little bit
the wall was yours
you built it high and wide
but left a hole just small enough
to crawl through

let’s pretend you saved me
dragged me from the wreckage
pulled me to your bosom
with bated breath i draw you in
