Poem: [revised] Scarred For Life
It could be watching your family
Diced up in slow-motion
By a madman with a machete,
Or the time your brother let you down.
It might be when you are wrongfully accused
Or the night you rat out a friend
Whether they figure it out or not.
Maybe you discover your wife is sleeping
With her Yoga teacher
Or remember the time your parents
Let you cry yourself to sleep.
It could be your motorcycle accident
Or the time you saw your Uncle naked.
Under a bad moon
It can all leave you scarred for life.
