Cruel and Unusual.

I'm feeling unusually cruel today
It's eating me up and it won't go away.
It's time I was causing someone to feel pain
Instead of receiving it, again and again.

I want to cause mischief, I want to be bad
I want someone to feel all the torment I had
I want to curse and I want to shout
I want all the misery just to pour out.

You might think I'm crazy, totally mad
But you've not lived through the year that I've had
It's time things were different, time that things changed,
Time for my feelings to be rearranged.

But come tomorrow I'll be back to myself
Never mind how bad it is for my health.
I'll be kind, I'll be patient, and ever so good
Taking the torment as really I should.
