He was was he was so

poor as a child / He

joked he said     he only had

One toy to play with

and     / I didn’t get it

even though I walked around

With my hand down my pants

Even though I knew the toy he meant

And after he had stopped

Stopped raping me he stopped

Telling that joke     or it’s     maybe it’s just

I don’t remember hearing it     / And it

wasn’t until / After he stopped

raping me that I started failing out of school / Lost

my friends became     bitter and mean un-


he wasn’t a funny man

why did he stop

telling the one     the lit-

tle joke we had     between us
