hero vs villain
Marching bands passing for a valiant hero like you.
You won in the battle; bet your friends like it too!
They see admiration and love in those stories you tell.
It’s your calculated move to micromanage them well.
How impeccable for you to depict me the villain of your tale?
Maybe the crook to be blamed who made the relationship gale.
You can get sympathy from people as many as you like.
You can block my name on your list; get rid of me out of your sight.
So here’s a toast to success for staining my clothes.
You can celebrate your new life; perhaps collect your new beaus.
Screwing me over onto something that I was sorry about is just unfair.
I knew you did everything on purpose; I knew that you were showing no care.
A big round of applause to a hero like you!
What a villainous crime to hurt me; bet your friends like it too!
