The Good Man

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
He worked from dawn to dusk
Of that there is no question
But what they don’t know
That they should know
Is his violence and aggression

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
He kept mostly to himself
Of that there is no doubt
But what they don’t know
That they should know
He’s a wife beating drunken lout

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
He terrorized his family
Of that there is no doubt
But what they don’t know
That they should know
His wife and child bailed out

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
He choked his wife and kicked her
Of that there is no doubt
But what they don’t know
That they should know
She was strong throughout

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
But the acts were caught on tape
Of that there is no doubt
But what they don’t know
That they should know
Nothing was edited out

Everyone thought him a fine man, a good man
But soon they’ll know the truth
Of his threatening anaphora
Now you know
What you should know
Keep fresh batteries in the camera
