Shrug

The Dean asked me
What do you want to be?
I said I’d settle for free
The Preacher asked me,
Where do you want to go?
Said I’m fine with a dirt hole
Travel agent asked me,
Where would you like to fly?
I told her Send me back in time
Lover asked me,
What do you want to do?
I said Get away from you
Friends asked me,
What’s on your mind?
Can’t look, too scared of what I’ll find
Child asked me,
Who are you?
Kid, you know better than I do
God asked me,
Who do you want to be?
I answered Mercy, anyone but me.
