BRILLAINT AND RESILIENT

   BOTH BRILLIANT AND RESILIENT

I went along even though she wanted to rule
She forgave me for being such an ungrateful fool
We both thought we had settled the score’
She got a boyfriend and I got a whore
She crossed the proverbial street by design
But I crossed the god forsaken line
She did what she did due to a hormone
I did what I did because of testosterone
It was a game of tit-for-tat and all that
I cursed once more with a tip  o’ my hat
Her only solution was retribution
But I didn’t need her nor her absolution
She was clever but I was mo**er fu**ing brilliant
Women get weary but us men are resilient
What counts is being able to bounce right back
And not  lose what you have and find what you lack
she was no saint  but I was a sinner
And as it turned out there was really no winner
I still remember the day a bolt of lightning split us apart
Yet she will always be a part of my tear stained  heart
