When you played both ends Sexin' every woman available While the one who stood by your side @Night lay hurt and crying But later became angry Calling you every insult nameable Did you have your fun? When you laid down your rules And she, not out of fear, but RESPECT Honored them and you Only to learn that she was Just another link in your "Chain of Fools" Did you feel like a King? When you made your bed As hard as you tried to be But discovered that the grass Wasn't as green as you thought you'd see Did you rest well? And, when you finally flayed your heart For once, giving not taking, thinking, "This is the One!" Forgetting in your new-found joy That what one does, in turn, unto him is also done Did you ""Charge it to the Game?" So, when you did the math Reflecting over your choices and actions And all your many faces, facades, and factions Did you add yourself to a list of winners? And when you weighed the final cost Did the scales of life (and what truly matters) Show that you had really Come up short....... and Lost?
