rot

My corpse is rotting
While I still live no matter how
Much I bathe perfume
The skin the rot is setting in

Changing my diet
Absolutely irritated
Deep inside of me
It rebels I can smell myself

The flesh on my jaw
Is pretending to hold my teeth
There’s gold in chewing
I’m mining through sulphur and coal

I woke yesterday
Seeing an ear on the pillow
It was clear time had
Come to reject the sound of you

Call for a doctor
For zombies who remember all
The time you killed me
My heart decided to keep on
Beating my revenge
