They voiced their disdain and deemed her flighty
With pleas for placidity in a judgmental spree
Lay down your munitions you myopic milksop
As I urged the eyes of their sad souls to see!
Pinned with a label of jagged and jaded!
Knife and note pinned right on her back.
Struck a chord in the holes of my hemorrhaging heart
Baffling bewilderment, such a calloused attack.
Then the one she trusted smirked at her pain
That self-centered, cynical, sore little man
Seems she’s his tool now… job to get done
Deemed decent for duty, just part of his plan.
But I was banished, barred, belittled, and bled
As her bottle of syrup poured over shame
Dehumanization, darkness, denial, and dilemma
As robot shoulders yield shrugs all the same.
Now her android friends send laser beam stares
Skin piercing heat from a programmed face
While I continue to pray with courageous confusion
Absorbing attacks in the absence of grace.
I came to her rescue when she hated me most!
Like a crucifixion, they all let her down!
I paid a price for her friendship as I fought for her name
With her heel in my back and my face on the ground!
