So what if I woke up changed it’s not like I’m a wild hog
or some Evill thing not a Reall hog
that follows you home Jumps into the window
a Munky with Cocks feete w’th Claws don’t believe
what my Accuser says or believe it
the fact is my divorce attorney’s building
sits on the site of the prison where they kept the Accused
in Chaines in 1692 I came there with a silk scarf
worn loosely at the neck borders looped
with colored thread he came with daisies dark
chocolate and proclaimed
my wife came towards me and found fault with me
downstairs in the dungeon they chained us to the walls
to keep our spirits from escaping in the Liknes of a bird
