Stain
Irremovable
Yet irreplaceable
Go away
Scraping
But not too hard
Don’t want to take away
What’s underneath
And others may see your apparent ugliness
But why should you care, know what, that’s their business
Stain
Discolouration
Yet alienation
Go away
Removing
But fading out
Don’t leave behind a
Ghostly mark
It’s strange how I need you there when you should be gone
But why should you care now that your job is done
Stain
Inspiration
Yet innovation
Go away
Marking
But standing still
Don’t move around
I want my friends to see
Buy a drink, cook me food, give me change for the washing
But wash, tumble dry, dry out, I still hear you sing
Stain
Kind of loveable
Yet expendable
Go away
