    The shutdown from my mind when I
    tell you about the lo-down from the
    blackmail committed by the sneaky male,
    who took me for my money drained the jar
    of all my honey and left me looking funny.

    Oblivious to the crime he had committed and
    the emotions he snatched on the way out. The
    shutdown of my dignity as he even stole some of
    my self-respect and but my confidence in the trash.

    “Yeah he was good,” never been blackmailed before
    giving up all I had for what? taken to the bank but
    did not have anything to deposit. The shutdown from
    the putdown and the letdown of my most precious
    commodity myself.
