shielding

if you asked
late at night
when
my honesty
counts
unwilling sheep
i’d say
if i’m being truthful
that
there’s no room
for politeness
in the pursuit
of love
balls
all
the
way
out
it’s easy
to say
but
it takes a special
kind of nerve
to put preaching
into practice
when
you know
you don’t know
what you’re
going to hear
back
if you asked
early in the morning
when my dreams
didn’t hear
the alarm
there
is no
time like
the present
i remember
there
are no
transplants
for broken hearts
friends
if fortune
is offering
favours
to the bold
i can
use a few
see
here
the thing is
here’s the thing
i absolutely
can
look back
to look ahead
the earth is round
motherfucker
but
saying you’ll
take a bullet
for someone
is a selling point
only
if they’re willing
to stand behind you
