leave all responsibility on us

who carry on in your dispensation

you who made things this way

and leave it like a cat leaves its shit in the litter

put all liability on us

to shift blame for your psychotic kinghood

we will fight and forgive

do wrong when we mostly think we're right

go our own way and cause immeasurable grief

then circle back with flowers and apologies and amends

you may not forgive so easily so then what good are you?

you reserve the right to judge and condemn

even when we've made amends and nothing's good enough for you

so let us not even think of you our blood boiling at your ways

to do so invites trouble to any good-hearted souls who wish

to right wrongs and are punished anyway

the incorrigible evil are bound for oblivion

dragging some unfortunates down with them

(they are almost as bad as you are power-crazed and mad

and this is you power of all as cheap as a common gangster)

so be it let those of us who love and forgive live like animals

with no thought of past or future or some imagined salvation

but fully alive in the Only Instant and fully ourselves

and as we forgive and forget and live our love to its fullest

you oh unappeasable One can kill us or not as you will
