The Blame Game


Let’s play a game, we’ll start with you

Tell you what I feel, not of use

Arrogant, lazy, always crude

Tug another knot, tie the noose


Cowardly ways, I’ll take the blame

Take all that’s left, nothing to say

All is fair when we play the game

Add another string, braid through the day


Roll the dice; go on, take your turn

Violent times or a hateful gaze

One message for me, time to learn

Another twist and down a ways


Time to blame me and I’ll blame you

With no one to win, we all lose

No one believes what we could do

Tug another knot, keep it loose


No one here can stop the abuse

Tug another knot, tie the noose



wow that is really deep
