"In My Defence"

There are words I could use in my defence.

My mind goes blank. I can’t think of any.

I’m ill. That’s not a criminal offence.

You take me to bits. There are too many

Answers you’ve rehearsed. If I’d a penny,

For each time that I knew a point I’d made

Was valid, yet you just wouldn’t hear me –

Then, stuff "benefits" – I would be well-paid.

The way that you seem to want to steer me –

I won’t go. You tried to break me: Nearly.
