Let's Get To The Bottom Of This - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
Was I there for you?

'Yes.'

To prove my love was true?

'Yes.'

And did I sacrifice my life,
With a showing you this too?

'Yes.'

Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
Who was there when no one showed they cared?

'You were.'

Who was there?

'You were.'

And who protected,
To wipe those tears you wept from you?

'You were there in all of my despair.'

So why would you call me selfish?
And...
Why would your friends believe,
You've been made a fool?
When in private they weren't there,
To see what I'd been through.

Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
Was I there for you?

'Yes.'

To prove my love was true?

'Yes.'

And did I sacrifice my life,
With a showing you this too?

'Yes.'

One day you will remember my love.
Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.

One day you will remember,
Me.
Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.

One day you will remember...
Who had been deceived.
Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.

One day you will know why,
You grieve.
With a memory of what love should be.
To up from you to leave.

One day you will know,
A true love that you had but couldn't keep.

Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
Oh yes!
Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
Oh yes!
Let's get to the bottom of this.
Let's get to the bottom and do it quick.
