“He taketh the wise in their own craftiness…” Job 5:13
(By the grace of God, this is not my story. Sadly, it is the story of many)
There are some things I did, no one knew but me.
I kept my secret, and respectability.
I’d smoke in private; no one would ever see.
Now I have a lung disease; it’s called COPD.
My body is mine; I’ll do as I well please.
I drink now and then, nursing liver disease. 1 1
No one’s seen the track marks underneath my sleeve.
Getting high now and then, no one would believe.
Countless trips to rehab, free I cannot be.
I’ve kept my secret, and respectability.
She said she was pregnant, but no one could see.
Abort the fetus; no wiser will they be.
I’ve a nasty cold; it won’t let go of me.
My doctor informs me, that I have HIV.
But by craftiness, no one did ever see.
I fooled all, and maintained respectability.
