hanging committee

oh hell tonight
i am truly my father’s daughter

as much as you’ve hurt me
and still seeking your approval
despite your love requiring sedatives
and prayer chains

i’ll say this once
so you better fucking listen

i know what villainy you’re capable of
and what transgressions you are not

you’ve been strung up wrongly

for once
this is a pyre you don’t deserve
lord how can it be
my heart is
defending you again

somewhere mick jagger is humming bitch
and i’m buying a forgiving round
for your hanging committee
