It Was Good (To Be Bad) - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

to return to center stage again
i'd repeat that worn-out lie
to relive the warmth and pleasure
i would sulk, pout and cry

i would've preferred a gentle hand
with an occasional pat on the back
but rather than get indifference
i learned it was good to be bad
