There’s an ad on some Word Press posts saying,
‘Don’t Cover Up Your Dark Spots’ and I thought,
Whoa, isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?
Keep our sins and prejudices in the attic,
not flaunt them, like dirty washing ; to hide
our inner trolls. I know what the ad means. I’m not stupid.
I just got carried away by the metaphor, that’s all.
And anyway I almost put up a post yesterday
Revealing a darker, nasty side of me but my therapist
Urged me not to put it up, that there are dark spots,
She said, that are best concealed.
