Hurt Me... Your not the Boss


Why you alway hatin
Why can't you be relatin

Did I ever hurt you
Tell me only what's true

I never laid a finger on you
I never told you what to do

So why do you want to hurt me
Don't you see
Your killing my soul
Your making my heart a piece of coal

But that's your goal isn't it
You don't care one bit
You just want everyone to be like you
So you won't be differnt cause you'll have a crew

A possy who'll do your dirty work
They make kids tremor to think about where you might lurk

But I'll tell you something now
I'll never be like. There is no way how
So just get lost
Cause your not my boss

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
