Superman Should Start With An E, For Empath

Like a bear stealing garbage from a garbage can,

being stealthy has no play in the factor.

I'm a bull toting china, wearing shoes that hurt my feet,

feeding lines, like Hollywood's next big time actor.


What you want to hear, I was just about to say,

no need to worry, I was on my way to fix it.

I accommodate like Delta, have yourself a Delta-rific day,

pour it on so thick, that you can't smell the shit.

There is an up to every down, a smile for every frown,

don't be confused, "realness" - just won't fit inside this package.

No, that cost is extra, an expense you can't afford,

it requires responsibility for everybody's baggage.


Not just anyone can do it, spread the crap so eloquently,

it's a skill used to accommodate survival.

So, if you need me, give a holler, no, I'm never far away,

just google empath, sit back and wait for my arrival.
