His Ego

 

It saddens me

to see you triumphant

 

wooden blocked

and sliver scaled

 

Thrashing and running

Thrashing and running

 

Your daughter

when she sleeps

 

Your wife

when she dies

 

Your sister

when she stops

 

Your lover

when she sways

 

Your mother…

 

Your mother

when she sees you

 

Triumphant

silver scaled

 

and she smiles.
