You Thought I’d Be Fooled

IMG_0621 (2).jpg

I need state protection,
more than a little affection
You thought I would be fooled by
a euphemism for vanity?

Posed upright, dance begun
We did the steps that “must be done”
You thought I would be ruled by
the man who promised sanity.

The floor at the bottom
doesn’t give way
I get up again, just to say,
Ha I win the dirty way!
