Excuse me

David Linsday 1986 (Long beach)

Please excuse my interrupting
Your abruptly erupting
And all together off putting
Violent and incoherent
Crazy and belligerent
Self absorbed and conceited
Idea I'll be defeated.
You may not agree
But I've come to see
Your hatred is just jealousy
Wishing you could be me
And now, disturbingly
You seqloister yourself
All high and mighty
Unjustified in your campaign
To force your reign.
One day, one moment, one time
And you've since burned inside
Thought you could hide
But we still collide.
A battlefield of your own make
You're the one who shakes
While I sleep through your anger quakes
You exude a dark cloud when you're around
But my rest is sound
Passing through the never
I've begun to see
Your one sided battle doesn't bother me
I've already won, you see?
