Lazy minions begging favors where none are deserved
Citing biological connections along with an aversion to assist and
An allergy to parental units
Ignorance of necessity while defying their own words with hypocrisy.
In that particular game of justice
Does not excuse when inflicting those soul sucking miseries on others
While averting challenges and confrontation.
Predatory offspring clawing at patience
Shredding to scraps what was once kind, loving and innocent
Manipulating with insincere excuses
Greedily sucking out the remnants of marrow
Only sharing blame on the sins of the parent
Scarring better judgment with excuses by
Squandering that last chance of forgiveness
Imprudently wasting dignity
Dishonoring with heavy lidded drama by
Scraping off the scale of pain
Leaving open wounds, fresh scabs
Maiming the only one who defends the offender
Wearing a burlap shirt
Mimicking crocodile tears dripping through the dirt
While hiding in the luxury of a gilded garden maze.
