menagerie

come to me my jaded one
naked as can be and all undone
menagerie of enemies
in yer pants as thick as thieves
dance for me, corrupted one,
writhe and charm me with your lies and
misery
let it be for just this once
let me use you and be the one
who is the ONE and I'll be the king of gloating
lay with me,little fungible one
ill dispose of you when I am done
you'll succumb and you will be tilled under
torn asunder
i only want to sing you a song
but if you listen you'll be gone for so long
never mind the consequence
dying tonight would be a good defense
and undue
but life is not fair and nor are you.
