I’m a good person!

I don’t cheat

(well, except that test,

but it was an important one, I couldn’t afford to fail!

Oh, and with that girl at the bar that one time when

the wife was out of town, but that was her fault)

I don’t lie

(well, except to my mom, she couldn’t handle knowing

and would raise a fuss).

I don’t steal

(Hey, those pirate book and video sites aren’t stealing,

those folks don’t deserve to be paid for their work!)

I don’t drink too much

(that time doesn’t count, we were celebrating!)

I’m not violent

(you can’t say she didn’t deserve that black eye).

I’m a good person.

I’m just like you, right?

What does ‘good’ mean, anyway?
