I’ve come to tell you
what you have long suspected is true

I am unclean
my motives questionable
my character continuously redeemed

I have allowed my children to wander
among the wolves and thieves
amid a world of moral imbeciles

Whenever I meet with you, I
come away confused, no more
the poet the singer who performs

Reduced to an unlimited loss
all my attempts met with ridicule
my resources of no value

I have been seized by abandon
who would confess to your crimes
at any moment or time you might choose

I am evidence of the punishment
only the desperate liars
in their infinite loneliness refuse
