Troubadour or Charlatan

What would you change

if you could start anew?

are there opportunities

you had that you blew?

Chances you were given

that you chose to ignore,

instead believing the words

of a travelling troubadour.

Convinced he had the answers

and that he knew best,

but where did he go when

you put his words to the test.

Left on your own he made

you look like a fool,

too late to realise he had

just used you as a tool.

Now you know he was

a charlatan in all but name

and that you were just one

of many pawns in his game.
