I understand your mortification,
I shock myself too.
But is it really a surprise,
You’ve known me as long as I, you.
The twists that you’ve endured,
Stifled and distraught.
I helped you out with all of them,
I’m the one you taught.
Don’t look at me so aghast,
I cannot take the blame.
To share with you my secret,
Is the reason that I came.
So pack on the load I gave you,
Your new burden with which to cope.
I’m releasing all my guilt now,
With a single coil of rope.
