Abecedarian About Being Eaten By Snakes

After an agonizing adolescence began, my
Brain began emitting bursts of
Corrosive acid, driving me crazy,
Drenching and diluting my thoughts,
Eroding everything and triggering my
Fears for future functioning.
Greatness gone forever, trapped godlessly in
Hell's circles with the other heathens hoping to
Implore impunity from our infinite fiery
Jail cell, attempting to justify our depravity.
Knots tied around necks, knuckles bleeding
Loathing love and losing grasp of the
Meaning of reality, we muse the metaphysical and mortality,
Nothing but necrosis to console us nightly.
Overt attempts to outwit the ultimate authority
Pacing our days in parsecs of pain, we are too
Quick to quench our quixotic fantasies of eternal hibernation.
Ravenous vultures rush for our rotting corpses, but recoil,
Sensing sacrilege in the souls
That have yet to transcend our physical forms.
Under the unmercifully blazing sun, ugly
Venomous snakes try in vain to enervate
What has been weakened beyond a whit of life. These
Xanthic, yellow-bellied creatures had been
Yearning for the forces to yield such an extravagant feast of flesh.
Zealously, they devour us from zenith to nadir until, as we wish, we are nothing
