Of all the powers you hold over man you’d think by now you’d stop make believing that I could save you.

The priest would tell you only faith could do that and you’d love him for it.

However I, I may be the worst but not by choice.

I may be the culprit but it’s by your voice.

When you have no control, what to do?

Make believe I could save you.

I don’t do weak.

I don’t do weak

“I don’t do weak” she said with a fake smile.

Happily closed with outright denial.

It would last a while.

Each brick would fall if not carefully removed.

Tentatively touched and replaced a new but twice as much.

“I don’t do weak” she said with a fake smile.

– Yeah, it had been a while.

Audience likes to dislike – short.

There is a demographic.

A group that hears too much.

A place for the addicted.

You can hint but you can’t touch.

It’s okay to fear the reaper  but don’t you call him by name.

The audience is energetic as long as you play their game.
