Blame Game

You’re so devoted to all your grudges,
You cherish them like they're a prize;
You hold them with pride on your pedestal
Bursting with bliss as your relationships die. 

Next time you frame everyone's mistakes 
And hang them right above their head, 
You should hang up a mirror as well
And take a good look at yourself instead.

You love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed
To turn your finger around?

You're so foolish to expect anybody 
To respect a narcissistic point of view;
Within your childish perception the lens
Is solely focused on you, you, you, and you.

Next time you frame everyone’s mistakes 
And hang them right above their head, 
You should hang up a mirror as well
And take a good, long look at yourself instead.

You love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed 
To turn your finger around?

Yeah, you love to play the blame game
So let's play another round-
What's wrong- are you too ashamed
To turn your finger around?

    Nice to read this poem again. I am finally getting around to checking out your lyrics! Sorry I could not respond to your absolutely amazing comment earlier. It is haying time once again, and I am constantly busy except Sundays. Also, thank you so much for creating the lyrics contest, and my placement therein. I used up all my free time for three days, writing feverishly to try to make the deadline. I am so glad I did. I sincerely appreciate your support of my humble writings. God bless!
