You’re being played

You’re being played,

you’re bitter cos you didn’t make the grade,

it’s hard to take the blame when you’re afraid.

 

You’re being played,

by vampires with a penchant to persuade,

they feed you lies that should be left to fade.

 

You’re being played,

beguiled by rousing pictures they displayed,

you want to be a part of their parade.

 

You’re being played,

left cursing foolish choices that you made,

their tit for tat was not a happy trade.

 

You’re being played,

your name is etched in stone and wreathes are laid,

where common sense and empathy degrade.
