All poems

Hear no, evil speak, no evil, see no evil

Fine tendrils of hair sprout from my ears
They dance in the wind like delicate spears
One day I believe they will whisper to me
Your life was the sum of your fears

Hear no evil,
Hear no evil,
In the end we are all equalled
Hear no evil,
Hear no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

My crumbling teeth still bite on my tongue
In spiteful revenge for those it has stung
One day all I speak will be poison to me
And I'll be glad when the chatter is done

Speak no evil,
Speak no evil,
In the end we are all equalled
Speak no evil,
Speak no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

The little red veins in my eyeballs spread
Knitting a gossamer blood fuelled web
One day all I'll see is the anger in me
But by then, I guess I'll be dead

See no evil,
See no evil,
In the end we are all equalled
See no evil,
See no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

Speak no evil,
Speak no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

Hear no evil,
Hear no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

See no evil,
See no evil,
In the end we are all equalled

Your own decay is your best friend
For we are equalled in the end
