Your sophism was a true talent
Which I was rather envious of
Lacing my tongue like hemlock
Its toxicity I’ve learned to love
Diamond lies glimmer lethally
I mined it out of your arteries
Coruscating past an acid flesh
Transpiercing it all desultorily
Who am I to cease your whims?
Cuffs bejeweled with gold voices
So offer me rubies and sapphires
If you feel precious and helpless
Faux phantasm you think succinct
Painting an entity bland and bleak
And I was a fool to let you think I am
You didn’t have to lie to be the higher man.
