how-could-you

Part of me wishes I could destroy you,
Make you feel the way I do.
I’d carve myself into you like a tattoo
And I would ruin you.

But I couldn’t be as cruel as you,
Yours is a path I wouldn’t ever pursue.
All you’ve done you can’t simply undo
And I never want to be like you.

  • Student: Fortify against Mordor
  • Student: Keep the orcs out
  • Student: Just, you know--
  • Me: Don't you say it
  • Student: Make Gondor great again
  • Me: O YOU SAID IT
