Lament

From the archives “Oct. 12, 2001”

Too proud to admit
I’ve goofed up in this bid
When I willingly permitted
To be bullied by such a kid

Imagination is deceived
And grieved for a reason
Frustration’s what I received
With a foolish heart in treason

Had dreaded always his whims
Should’ve expected from him
Before getting to the brim
A devil disguised as cherubim

Got to get my head clear
Not to play with devil’s spear
I’ll pack my pains and disappear
For my heart is surely dear
