A rhyme on your dime

Phenomenal nature of beings I'm related to, a 32 chromosomal DNA genome
From Chicago or Sicilian ancestral heritage, tripped to psychic martyrs of Rome
Paid to watch lions bite us, ripped our souls to atomic shreds of crossed bones
All dead and gone now onto their pagan immortality of insights and tones.

Everything's going to be whichever way it was always meant to be, just chillax
Don't panic and walk like a human ought to walk, straight ahead, eyes on target
With friends and foes aplenty or all alone flying solo without a map or a nap
Heavy tripping on LSD and THC, sun don't shine on terra ferma, face slapped.

There is an immortal trend for the heavy smokers of the ganja only some know
Breathing deeply, seeing invisible chimeras with a wide open third eye's glow
To rainbow's colors of infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, a grass' frequency
Copyright this and keep it on the cool downlo, love this syllabication intensely.

Does God even exist or not? Nothing matters is the God's honest blood Truth
Vampires and zombies thrive in imagination eating our fear and death forsooth
It's just a freaking rhyme on your dime, ten cents or quarter buck two bits
A grim reaper's rape of my intensional malfeasance to suck the witch's teats.
