Song and Dance
****************

I see you in the moonlight
You smile and wave your hand
I close my eyes and turn away
You were always one of the damned

Why did you do it?  I want to scream
Couldn't you let me be?
Now things are different; things have changed
It's all so clear to see

Whistle your tunes and ring your bells
I've learned nothing in life is free
Forget those plans you've already made
It's all a song and dance to me

You yanked me around and sent me to hell
I swam in your bottomless pool
You may have fooled me, but you can't fool the devil
'Cause the devil--he ain't no fool

No more; no more! I scream aloud
I'm not your little puppet
I've cut my strings; I'm free of you
I owe you no more debts

So call my name and wink your eye
I've learned nothing in life is free
Just think twice before you speak
It's all a song and dance to me

Use her then lose her
Was your plan from the beginning
And for a while, just a while,
You seemed to be winning

Not anymore! I cry happily
I broke free of your chains
With one last glance, I shake my head
And laugh as you dance in the drowning rain

So dance your dance and signal me over
I've learned nothing in life is free
I fell once already; I won't fall again
It's all a song and dance to me.

BobbyCat-
I liked the lyrical lilt to this.
Would appear the puppeteer no longer
pulls your strings.
Way to go.

Rex~that's the kind of message I was trying to convey.  

Marge~I wrote this poem a few years ago after one of my ex's broke up with me...this was the only way I could think of to get back at him at the time (and it was cheaper and legal, too! LOL). Thanks for the compliment.

Well way to go! Don't let anyone pull your strings!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
