im a thief in plain sight
in bed with you at night
im here to take your money
so im gonna call you honey
till your bank is run dry
im gonna get your savings
your identity as well
im here to spell disaster
your life is down the drain
look me in the mirror
i wont leave a trace
im inside the shadow
of the human race
im here to take your money
im here to take the stage
you know i hate you honey
ballerinas dance away
to da loo
have some fun
see you nest time
ill be some one
im an artist of disaster

i am a misuderstood lunatic

con artist
think I liked the phrase "an artist of disaster" best, I've known a few of those... this poem speaks to me about the lengths people will go to to manipulate and deceive themselves, to be something that their not, to fit in to the roles that have been handed to them... I could, of course, be five miles wide of the point, but that's the way it struck me on first reading... I enjoyed the mocking tone, the sense of gleeful sadistic relish... which, I suppose, if I'm right is also masochistic... nicely dramatised self-contempt, if so...

will return 'cause I'm sure I missed something. Either way, enjoyed. thanks for this.
