You homeopath,
your poison is sickly sweet
You say you can cure me,
but your medicine makes me so weak.

You lobotomist,
you nip at the bud
you treat sickness with deadly
precision, excision

You exorcist,
you expel my demons
make me shake from the inside
make me less than a human

You want to remove all my tumors
by slicing me open
by reaching your hands inside of me
But dear, can't you see,
I'm all stitched up inside
if you pull them out,
you'll pull everything else out of me

To think!
I dreamt of
kissing you so soft
you said to me, "darling,
now don't ever stop"

and to think!
Your tongue is
split down the middle
you speak in tongues and
you answer in riddles!
