Fair Play

Looking back I ask the reason
behind my greatest fear
in language I can comprehend

Spare me the grief of honesty
with sugar-coated cruelty
the farthest thing from my mind

My apologies have been rejected
at the mention of my name
offered with the best intentions

There’s nothing in my bag of tricks
no rabbits in my hat
breathing fire for a final twist
