The Schizo Blame-Shifting Phrenic

10 Dec

I can only blame myself for what I have done,

despite being easier to point my finger your way.

Don’t you dare judge me, I’m not the only one

that would shamefully bend the words you say.

If we sat down and commenced a game of chess,

I would do anything that it could take to win.

Eventually I would have to get it off my chest,

but only to relieve my foul conscience of sin.

Hello, I am the little voice that lives in your mind,

the reason that you so often feel insane.

However, I am the best friend you’ll come to find,

because now I am the only one you can blame.
