What began as a poem is now just a burden,
a vicious song that’s mine to keep.
What began as forgetting is now just a prototype of ways to fight off sleep
Arm the thieves with the wings and weights of soldiers to deepen the pockets of the meek
Make mixtapes of other peoples problems
and burn everyone CD’s.
Cause they’ve built themselves some charade
where a saving grace is hard to find.
What began as a song ended up as a death threat
addressed to everyone’s house but mine.
So far confined into dead ends
with greater love of consequence
and a quiver filled with bad intentions
