So It Goes.

You're the Boss, Applesauce

They were too enthusiastic

Their hands always shook

And my nails scratched at theirs

So they only saw claws

They didn’t see the elephant

Or the skeleton in the room

That danced around manically

And smelled like lemon perfume

Because they weren’t there

And neither was I

I was home

All alone

With water to spare

And other places to go

I really don’t care

I started tapping my fingers

But no one heard it

They’re all out dancing around

Leaving me submerged

With just an elephant to keep me alive
