    The two men shake hands A bargain has been made For a nameless daughter Her will never asked Up she trudges Up to the castle And down Down to the dungeon Where silently she weeps For she knows in her heart Never again will she see the sun rise Then comes a tap at her shoulder And the nam...

    There is a bridge, and a car driving slowly across it, and a driver, whose head is spinning with vodka and misery. The car stops and she steps out. She does not stagger. She will somehow manage to hold herself together in these last few moments. She walks to the edge of the bridge. There is a small ...

    Slowly shall I rest my weary bones ‘Pon a bier of jagged stone Too young to live, too old to die Never shall the dark moon’s light Shine upon my soul again Where has the tempest gone? The storm, the rage, the fury’s call Where has the silence gone? The sigh, the tears, the lovers’ so...

    Argent banners fly o’er Battlements strong and high. Chatoyant silk garbs the noble ladies and Damask their chivalrous lords. Enthralled are they, Fraught with their own fetid grandeur, Giving no thought to the woes of the morrow. Hailing the festive night, they forget the bloody dawn...

    Someday I’ll kiss you And you won’t shrink away In fear Revulsion At the stink of my decay Someday you’ll realize That I have higher aims Than death Destruction And the consumption of sweet brains Someday you’ll love me Just as much as I love you Forever Don’t worry The v...
