The butcher's bloody apron
Soiled with flies and shaven
Large intestines
And legs of lamb to spoil
Pheasant plucked of feathers
Muscles severed
For the lobster's untimely boil

Fowl indeed for us
That loathe sympathy for the swine

Shopping at the market
Cut throat bargain
Wide selection
The fish head tells me so
Bringing home the bacon
Thus cries the raven
The stove is out of coal
But there's money left to burn

Brigade of horse hooves
Accompany of werewolves
At dusk in the woods
Blood thirsty vampires

Chopping block martyr
Guillotine slaughter
Hangman's dilemma
Of the beheaded chicken
Maggots suckling wet nurse
Fermented pus
Caustic secretions
Of a poignant conversation


from Transparent Make​-​believe, released November 8, 2003
