They’re failing you

We don’t want to judge wrong, so we are listening

but the guys you sent to represent you,

the ones you said would speak on your behalf,

they’re failing you; their script is jumbled up

they started without an end in mind

when we’ve gone miles with your map, they are asking to turn back

they use words they can’t match, their promises bore bitterness,

how do we trust that you mean good? how do we know you will deliver

understand us when we treat you with contempt

when your good doesn’t thrill us

when you start a statement, and we finish it for you.

we’ve heard it before, like a choir song

maybe we were bitten once. We are forever shy
