LJ Idol Week 6- Heel Turn

I am nothing special
My intellect is inflexible
It just drones on
Narrow but intense

I don't drive a car
Didn't date til I was 30
Wear the same clothes every day
Cloned white shirts and khakis
Italian shoes the splurge

I married my assistant
To keep rumors and talk down
I like men and women
But don't like to share my thoughts

I knew I shouldn't take the money
Knew they'd build a super weapon
To make everything before it
Look like mercy in the end

But the work was my obsession
And obsessions need for funding
In that I am no different
From the junkie on the street

I knew that they would make me
Into the shadow dancer
The reaper sans the sickle
Satan without the horns

I fellate the pistol
I know that I need only
Pull the trigger in defiance
And save the sunset yet

In the end I couldn't do it
So I took their millions
Given the choice of prisons
I'll take the guilded cage

If any live they'll hate me
But not likely with the passion
That I hate myself
Today and everyday
