me no questions
     tell me no lies     
          of omission         

          of the father
the father for forgiveness
for forgiveness not permission
for a favor
for trouble

me again when I’m sober
me again in the morning
me after I’ve had coffee


    a way in   
    a way out
for directions
and you shall receive
     a swift kick in the can
     kick the can down the road
           the road to perdition

Ask for it
