“I would give my right arm if . . .”

How often have I heard these words spoken?

But never carried through

The left arm, for most at least, less desirable as sacrifice

Word are cheap, when not adhered to

No, I did not need your sacrifice

But your integrity, honesty, and loyalty true

Yet, these I never had

Keep your right arm

Yes, please do

And flatter me not with your oaths untrue

My hero you failed to be

You, of feet of clay, as you proved to be

It’s fine, it’s fine

I will go on

And never miss

Your right arm

Or your lies

Masquerading as fine speech

Nevermore

Will you be revered

In my eyes
