Default The Fool in my Head

There is a fool in my head
who wants you dead

for the day’s motivation
he would freeze dry your
tears and sprinkle it on
hot drinks in the morning

If you should find yourself
in a colosseum, bound to be
molested by some burly criminal
in the naked heat of an ancient blood sport
no loan would be too risky
for his front row seats

Your loss, his win
he and I are
not the same
but he is in me
praying at the alter of
your befallen image
that it be so
that it be so

so long as he exists
I have not let you go,
I have not let you go until
his voice is gone
crowded out by time and
other characters less sick
and the truth is
he is in your head too
praying, wishing, with
voodoo dolls and incantations,
spell bound --
making fools of us both

I don't want any gay people hanging around me while I'm trying to kill kids.
