Demonised and vilified,

I worshipped and adored.

You lost your way and injured me,

betrayed, abused, ignored.


That pedestal was way too high,

for you to stay upright;

alas your world came tumbling down,

your reign fell overnight.


Naivety and ignorance,

fell from my tired eyes,

I see you for your human self,

you simply were not nice.
