Consigliere

Whatever you
wanted or needed
while you were in town,
that’s what we did.

Be it bad decisions,
moral impropriety,
derision of every single
person we knew,
or just alcohol
and a party,
I was there.

I am literally
sociopathic in
my acceptance
of my friends.

I’m like the chauffeur
scoring hookers and blow
for the band.

And you repay
20 years of
me rationalizing…
well, a good confidante
never reveals
those things,
now does he?

But you repay that
by telling some stranger
my secrets?

I never exactly
thought you were
the godfather,
but I also
didn’t figure you
for Fredo.

You broke my heart.

-GD Butler
