Civil, Not Civilised

 
I'm a civil man
I'm not civilized
Behind that word
The Wicked and Cowardly hide

I'll not ask another man
To do my dirty work
To strike blows
and be struck
Bear my pain and my hurt

If you touch me
I touch back
and I will not stop
Not seeking a saviour
Not calling no cops

I'll saddle my own horse
Gon stomp my own snakes
I'll handle my problems
Whatever it takes

I understand living
And I know what a life's worth
I'm a civil man
but if I dish it
I can take it
For better
Or worse
