Can'T Handle The Truth

Can'T Handle The Truth

Don't ask for my opinion
Unless you want the truth.
Don't ask me to lie to you,
I'll only give you the proof
That I don't do it.

Don't get bitchy with me
Just because I pointed out some truths.
Don't review me in a fit of anger
Because I was honest with you.

Don't read this and think:
'Oh this is so shit'
Just because I'm telling you
In poetic form, what I think.

Don't just think that I'm a gavel hunter
Or in persuit of stars.
I know when I have made a good attempt
And when others are not up to their best, by far.

I know, because I know you.
I have read and reviewed you before.
Just for one bad review you think you can
Trample me down and leave the floor.

Oh no, I don't think so
Don't underestimate me,
If you want pure and simple honesty
Then get in touch, and we'll see.
