I am but glass, you have but broken
With words both shouted and unspoken
You throw me up against the wall
Just so you can watch me fall

If I'm cracked it's not enough
I must be shattered to show your tough
Grab a broom, sweep up myself
Put my pieces on the shelf

Search and search to find some glue
Don't worry I'll be good as new
