The Bastard


And so the bastard sings........

His cruel deformities an abomination to those who set our standards,
It is a vicious, stinging blade that cuts him down in the street,

And the vermin watch, their cocks in their hands,
As the bastard falls, crying,
The gushing blood flows into the lifeless streets,
Glowing rivers of virility,
Washed into the gutter,

I took her hand, to take her away...

small minded girl
small minded little girl

never a good thought in her mind
she spends all day imagining dumb stuff in her stupid little mind 
everything she thinks means nothing
her perspective is useless in the eyes of everyone besides herself

dumb, stupid, air-head they call her
degrading her day by day
stripping every last thought from her microscopic mind

I crash-landed on the clouds 

I bounced back

I juggled Pluto

I breathed on Neptune

I grew a farm on Saturn

I named all the planets that

All Alike

They are all alike,
And she's not,
Nor has she ever

Where they'll all jump off,
Just because that's
What everyone else does.
