Everyone's a Critic
By Aiden Ellis
Twelfth Grade, Woodstock Union High

Out of his reach
He said,Lord I do not mean to beseech.
But I'm a preacher, can you teach me how to preach?
Crashing wave,
I know that I'll be workin till the grave,
I'm a slave, Can you teach me to behave

Everyone's a critic in the end
But it's what you choose to do with judgment
That matters here my friends

He was too tall
They shouldn't have given him any thought at all
But they saw, that he had so far to fall
Where to begin,
They tore his body right out of its skin,
It's a sin,He just sat there with a grin and he said

Everyone's a critic in the end
But it's what you choose to do with judgment
That matters here my friends

It's how it goes piss on a rose and say you don't know why
Give it time, maybe you'll see,
My last goodbye.
