pinkie promise

He broke another promise
I made him pinkie swear
He begged me for forgiveness
i didn't give a hair
"your pinkie belongs to me now.
not you arm and not your liver"
to myself "where could it be now"
and i ran to find the cleaver
"you don't need your pinkie anyway"
i said to him warm and soft
"I've got nothing else to tell you"
and i chopped his pinkie off
I wear it on a necklace
It is my lucky charm
no one dears break a promise
when they swear on their right arm
someone swore to me once
Merle on a toe
her toe belongs to me now
a new one will not grow
