Mr. So & So (Waltz #3)

(Mark McAdam)
September 10, 2016

For DFW, ES, PSH, etc.

Nowhere to spend all those compliments
I suppose that's a lot to live down to
But you were always, in all ways, betrayed as the best
Now we're left to guess
At what it feels like
To be a real life Mr. So & So
We'll never know your mind
Or what else you might've left behind

You could've soaked up some accolades
And gathered true things around you
But you could only see the one way: to self medicate
We realize too late
What it feels like
To be a real life Mr. So & So
We'll never know for real
If the brightest had to make a deal

Can't say I'm not angry
Can't say I compare
Can't say much of anything to back down your guard
Was it really so hard?

What would you say, Mr. So & So
If you were here
And what else might up and disappear?
