Treating people like possessions is my primary transgression See, I often finds it useful to begin with a confession Since sinning has become my obsession Coupled with a lack of discretion Since you can't only be a poet in this land of milk and honey That only flows for those willing to sacrifice their time for money Wallow and they drown in it But my time is mine Isn't it? And I don't want the fruits of others' labors anyway Besides the udder's dry And all the bees have flown away From these bright young things overflowing With the time that they will pay
