Absolutely Worthless

I don't give a damn anymore – 
I've only wound up betrayed. 
It's all been absolutely worthless – 
all the efforts I've made 
to be gentle and kind 
are repaid with contempt, 
degraded by sympathy 
and worthless kindness 
and love that isn't meant. 
I'm through with joy and company, 
I've done with pretty words, 
betrayed – there's no hiding-place 
anywhere in the world.
 — Peter Hammill 'Betrayed'

Stern und Dang!
