For Michael Jackson
What did I do to deserve the retribution, dissolving me in a solution of acidic rumor?
I am as human as you, I wear a heart, a soul, but you trap me in an editorial fish bowl.
Everyone wants to see some dirt, throw me under the print, don’t care that I hurt.
How perverted my pain must be breaking news, how much more of me can you use?
Love was all I needed, all I pleaded the world to feel, but you peeled me till I was raw.
Spinning into seclusion, from the column of slaughter, altered to fit your illusion.
So here the stage is bare, who will you snare in the pen now that I am gone?
I beg you to stop for those left behind; feel my love, for you are still a part of mankind.
