The Prize

I'ts always offense or defense
No whisltes. Always offsides.
The goalposts - unattanable -
are nevertheless within sight.

Was there ever a time we weren't playing
same colors but on different teams?
It's always offense or defence
At least that's how this all seems.

It's always offense or defense
with each of us counting the downs
same plays but on different teams
round and round
losing ground
at least that's how it seems.

It's always offense or defense
No whistles, always offisides.
But I'm fucking tired of playing
here's my white flag; take your prize.

I know you're still reading.
What do you think awaits you here?
Why're you so obsessed with me?
Good people rot in forgotten graves.
Great people leave victims and statues in their wakes.

Say all of your sacred words
the scarab, safe, resides
but I am bound for Ammit
for my heart of stone abides.
