Myötähäpeä

I looked at that photo
Until I thought my heart would burst
Shame
Such shame
That photo of him
Playing the gangsta
Playing the playa
Saggy pants on an old man
Backward hat
On gray hair
Dyed
And badly so

I looked at that photo
Until the tears streamed down my face
Shame
Such shame
That photo of him
Playing the rapper
Playing the game
Baggy shirt on a fat man
Grimy underwear
Stinking odor
And deathly so

I looked at that photo
Until I figured out who bears the blame of
Shame
Such shame
That a photo of him
Should not haunt me so
But I worry that it will
Threaten my son's good future
To be associated with him
He shares with that man
Only his name

I looked at that photo
And now I know without a doubt he is to blame for
Shame
Such shame
That a photo of him
Brings mocking from the young
Look at that old man!
Trying to be a singer!
Playing like he's a playa!
Baggy pants on a fat man
Grimy underwear
Stinking odor
Booze and Pal Mal Menthol

I looked at that photo
And now I know
Without a doubt
He is to blame
