Once I Didn’t Relish

once I didn’t relish
darkening the page

moved out and about
it just happened

what do we want
the white page for

better to let it stain
let it stand for dirty

follow the beautiful grime
if need be

still I’d rebel occasionally
crying it’s not my job

get somebody else
to do it

oh I shouted
deep into the night

but now that it has come to pass
I have accepted my fate

here, I’ll darken
this page for you
