500 Reasons To Chew On - Poem by Jon Alan

You know I'm talkin' to you
You know damn well who YOU are
But you don't really know WHAT you are
And you know I'm talkin' to YOU

Con me out of some bucks
Steal the kids, break my heart
You lost misguided toad
It's time for me to hit the road

Remember I almost died for you
Remember who came when tragedy struck
Remember you stole the kids
I won't make these mistakes again

When you're layin' on your deathbed
Making cheap excuses in your head
For what you did to me
You don't exist anymore

I almost believed you cared
You almost had me snared
You're a fiction in my head
You don't exist anymore

Funny, I don't remember who it was
That schooled me in my innocence
But I'm free now anyway
You didn't turn all the darkness away
You reserved the darkest part for me
So now I know
I don't want to know
Who you are

Don't call me again
I'm sure I won't call you
Turn out this light
There'll be no more day
No more night
For me and whoever you are and were.
