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.
