Afterthought 15—When I Was Down

Posted in quatrain by maggie on 2014/11/28

				"You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend
				When I was down, you just stood there grinning"
				— Dylan

		When I was down
		you just laughed off what I was down about
		When I was down
		you just kicked me out

		When I was down
		you just lied words we never said
		When I was down
		you just wished me cold dead

		When I was down
		you just shrugged like yeah what's the use
		When I was down
		you just cut me loose 

		When I was down
		you just turned against me two-faced
		When I was down
		you just called me waste

		When I was down
		you just said leave you the hell alone
		When I was down
		you just wanted me unknown 

		When I was down
		you just said you'd do it all over the same
		When I was down
		you just forgot my name

		When I was down
		you just washed your hands of my mess
		When I was down
		you just couldn't care less

		When I was down
		you just thought yourself of me well rid
		When I was down
		you just gunned after my kid

		When I was down
		you just cracked crude jokes of it
		When I was down
		you just quit

		When I was down
		you just were glad to call it our end
		When I was down
		you just moved on to your next friend
