Seated at the right hand of the father

at hiding it
won't know to look at 
embarrassment worse than bad breath

must have smacked my head against something
when I was playing good cop, bad cop
and I was the suspect
guilty of something 
no doubt

for interrogation
on why 
we didn't finish everything on the plate

to the experts
on why 
this sorta thing keeps happening 

down to a 
on the carpet
that better get clean right now mister

Taken down 
to the Department of Motor Vehicles 
where you flunk the eye test
cos you got a 
permanent, detached something or other
explaining a lot

Like why I left,
why I lean left
dress to the left
get left holding the bag
feel left out
but don't see left
as father is right handed
