Yeah, you're right
I did do all
Of those things
You accused me of

I won't apologize
For being me
But I will apologize
For not being me

I don't expect you
To understand
     I don't understand

My financed friends
Say it's some
Kind of an
Up and down
Scrambled egg
With cheese
And habanero
hot sauce

I feel so special
But I already
Knew that
The authorities
Have been
Telling me
That my whole life

Bet you
Didn't know that
You didn't
Know a lot of things
About me
Perfection is
     Too busy
Perfecting itself

I know that used to
Make you mad
You hated my secrets

I wasn't your friend
I was your
Cow dung example
To the world
The fertilizer
You used to keep
Your grass green

I didn't
Measure up
To your
Fine wine

But that's ok
I don't drink
Wine anyways

In fact
I kind of
Getting dirty
Rolling around
In manure

It gives me
The nourishment
I need to grow.
