This Lasting Image

I am not as much as you.
I am not what you need me to be.
Make a face; you don't approve.
You know it.
I know it.
That's why I have legs.
That's why I have muscle.
That's why I go the extra mile.
I do it all for you.
I do it all for you.
For you.
Make some stupid remark.
I may kill you.
But this is my smile.
They took it from me.
This is my smile.
Somebody made me laugh
before the cuffs came off.
I snubbed out some motherfucker's life.
You found out.
We had a laugh.
You took a picture.
You applied the rules.
No one told me
or I forgot.
This is it.
I had this laugh.
