Svengali

(google image – John Barrymore as “Svengali”)

You are the best at everything
You are God
but are too humble to admit it
most of the time

You have so much going on
we couldn’t possibly understand

You don’t want to bring us negative energy,
you say,
but you do anyway

You love us so much
We are “family”
but you don’t treat us that way

You come into our home
and take what you please
Of course you can,
you have the key

You never say “thank you”
or “please”

You hate liars

You are not who you say you are

You are Svengali

We were your slaves

We were suckers

but we know now

We will heal ourselves

and move on

Will you?
