How To Catch A Demon

Do not...
Try or make attempts,
To get me caught up in your nonsense.
If I have stated I am not aware,
Of what's going on between you and the others...
Without a thought to spare that cares.
And that's the way I have known it to have been.
With a relief to leave behind those who participate.

To expect of me to know what's going on,
With you and the others in your kept exclusivity...
Is something not to me you should mention.
Since it has been you not me,
Who sought to receive from them a popularity.
I have long given up,
On that 'who-said-what-to-who' stuff.
To have it changed with my name in the middle of it.

Today?
How to catch a demon,
Isn't as difficult as it seems.
Today?
How to catch a demon,
Is as easy as listening to those who demean...
Others as they scheme to then pretend,
A non-involvement with a professed innocence.
