we had us a good run

took them years

for us a decade or so

before the truth got out

they hated me

everything I stood for

they’d been interpreting

right from the start

where I thought felt

I’d been operating

right from the heart

their hate bubbled out

rancid streams of piss

puke bile y’know the score

& I felt a sense of relief

thank fuck for all of that

at least from now on

I don’t have to bother

playing nice to these

smiling faces hiding hate
