Pride was but a seed back then
Now arrogance has blossomed,
into a writhing monster unleashed
And you never saw it coming.
Now dance with the one you’ve brought
And sleep in the bed you’ve made,
Throw your silver and gold in the streets
You’ve failed to make the grade.
Blame none but yourself
ignore your detestable ways,
For the chickens have come home to roost
You have played the fool all your days.
You trusted in that green stuff
And it seemed to scratch the itch,
Now it’s all worth nothing
as they say, life is a bitch.
Take a look in that mirror
Perhaps this time you will see,
What you’ve failed to be honest with
While claiming to be free.
Is there light at the end of the tunnel you ask
Perhaps it’s time to be smart,
For GOD has only one weakness you see
the broken contrite heart.
