A Little Deeper


Draw the line and dig a little deeper
Inflict the pain and dig a little deeper
“Rationalize these lacerations”
Let’s see if he’s a screamer

Watch him die
Is he a pleader

Let it seep and dig a little deeper
Peel the flesh and dig a little deeper
“Empty this body”
Too bad he’s just a dreamer

Watch him cry
Is he a bleater

One more line and dig a little deeper
Inflict more pain and dig deeper
“It’s justified”

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
