Wise up

I knew when I saw you
that it could get bad
and I walked
toward the fire barefoot
little fool
little fool
laughing at the rules
that did not apply to me

And I kept at you
wanting more of you
demanding of you
what a fool
what a fool
little fool

That’s me when I think
I can walk on glass
for 25 years
and not go lame
smoking a pipe
that does not kill
changing my world
with one little pill

Little fool
little fool, still
that’s where it ends
turning a lover into a friend
turning a stranger into family
until no one keeps
it straight

Little fool
when will you pay
for what you ate?
