Were you asleep in the chair
As the sound cracked in the air
And the scent of the fire
Drifted out through the hall
Did I sleep in your bed
Or the room next to yours
Did the drugs cloud my head
And so leave me unclear
Here's what you were
Here's how I remember you
With your robe open wide
And your mouth to the side
They couldn't see where you clutched
Your golden son's image
They could see how you tried
to regain your ridiculous pride
But you failed then you died
With your dignity laid open
Right here's where you disappear
But here's how I will always see you
You ride in your white Cadillac
You ride through the crowd
Like a warrior
But they turn and look down
And they walk away
From your beautiful lie
And your absurd and malignant
Expectations
