I’m sorry I apologized
I can’t believe
I got down on my knees
You act like you’re
The center of the universe
Newsflash, you’re not
All you really are
Is a greedy, selfish, conceited, self-centered tyrant
Once again, you treat me
Like a slave
You act like a heartless conqueror
And as your sister,
I can never get away from you

You give me things,
Then take them back
In a fit of rage
I can’t take this anymore
But I have no choice
Until I move out,
I have to put up with
Your mood swings
When I move out. . .
It seems an eternity away
And with your ever changing temperament
Who knows whether I’ll move
To an apartment near campus
Or a graveyard
You’re a fantastic fighter
And I’m terrified
of making you angry
But with the way you act,
It’s unavoidable

Evil, heartless, selfish,
Greedy, scheming
All words I use to describe you Without hesitation
You treasure money more than
Friends and family
You are a monster who will
Die alone
You’ll be rich
But money doesn’t
Amount to happiness
You’ll spend life
In a dark depression
I don’t envy you, tyrant
