the assault

I will give you my back
when you push me with complaints
everything always
everyone else's fault

I will give you my profile
when your pushing turns to shoving
and the verbal abuse flows
freely from your faucet mouth

I will give you my hard gaze
when you need the truth most
stilling the furor
in your bulldozing tracks
the assault halts at my door.
