All poems

Cover it up my love

Like death masks laugh
And facades crack
Like crowds contain
Odd sociopaths
Like shadows hide
What's in plain sight
I see you draw your
Curtains tonight

Cover it up
Cover it up
Cover it up my love

Like condoms block
The spread of disease
Like false wigs can
Help subtly deceive
Like a first strike counts
As a counter attack
I see your answer is
Don't call back

Cover it up
Cover it up
Cover it up my love

Like busy as little
Busy bees
Like on carrion
Beauty feeds
Like all good things
And charitable deeds
There's something rotting
When you look beneath

Cover it up
Cover it up
Cover it up my love
Cover it up
Cover it up
Cover it up for good
