climb into the casket
safe within the parapet

sackets in the parapet
pigs are out and growling
slaughter by the seashore
see the lifeguard drowning

shoot her full of airholes
climbing up the casket
take me to the casket
teeth upon her red throat

rip apart her holler
snip the seas fantastic
treat her like a sailor

full and free and nervous
out to make his fortune
either this or that way
sickly or in good health

piss upon a building
like a dog in training
teach to heel or holler
yodel on a sing song

screwing for a dollar

sucking on a firehose
chewing on a rubber line
tied to chair and rarebits
pay another player

nuns across the sea wall
black hood horseman raging
swordsmen eating fire

fire on the carpet
set the house a blazing
seize and bring it flaming
gently to the ground ground

dizzy bell Miss Fortune
fat and full of love juice
drip it on the carpet
down below the firehose

weep and whiskey fortune
sail me to the moon dear
drunk and dungeon sailors
headless Roman horsemen

their heads are in the outhouse
fish upon the water
bowl upon the savior

toothless wigged laureate
plain of bull and fancy
name upon a letter head
impressing all the wheat germ
love you for a nickel
maul you for a quarter
set the casket flaming
do not go gentle blazing
