Pluto, the Forgotten Son

Father, I know I’m only half your son
I could never be one of your children;
When I’ve killed the you in me, I’ll be done.

The Children of the Sky, the Earth, the Sun
Unlike I, have virtues their Fathers lend;
Father, I know I’m only half your son.

If, of you, I can only ever be some,
I want none, do not gift residue ends;
When I’ve killed the you in me, I’ll be done.

Pluto was always too far from the Sun
Disowned in the reverse cauldron of space;
Father, I know I’m only half your son.

Broken frames of happier pasts I shun
For your image shall not be my mirror;
When I’ve killed the you in me, I’ll be done.

In Sleep’s static darkness, I, with a gun
Purge tyrannical masks you have me wear
Father, you never let me be your son;
Now, I have killed the you in me, I’m done.
