I will break the mold

you’ve made of me

I will defy my own rules

I will be free of your suspicion

I will forge my own tools

I will raise my own dead

and set them loose again

I will evolve my own language

and learn to speak again

in my own native tongue.

nursery rhyme

turn a blind eye

and the other smug cheek

kneel in the dark

grind your rotting teeth

sit on a fat lap

of red satin pants

have you been nice?

then make a wish!

suffer little children

two by two

joyful and triumphant

hide your chocolate eggs.
