you  don’t  see
your  elevated  opinion  of  yourself

thinkin’  you  got  something  unique
thinkin’  you  got  something  to  offer
thinkin’  you  got  a  grand  purpose

giving  you  the  “right”
the  moral  justification
to  treat  me  like  shit

you’re  a  toxic  muther fucker
just  get  outta  my  face

if  you  wanna  crucify  somebody
there’s  some  wood,  some  nails,
a  ladder  and  some  tools

show  the  world  how  special  you  are
and  crucify  yourself

this poem is in response to this song ~
i  guess you might say that i object to the lyrics…
or at least the  judgmental  attitude
