Going Home

 

Make believe it’s all okay,

pretend that things are fine

but this time it has gone to far

and gone and crossed the line.

I’m heading back to times before,

back where I belong,

for the disillusion feeling

has become far too strong.

I’ll go and fetch my shovel,

I know the very spot,

I’ll dig a massive hole there,

easy it is not.

My shovel, I will fling away,

I’ll climb in to the pit;

laying down I’ll claw the earth,

dragging down at it.

The mud it pours in to my mouth

floods into my nose,

my eyes, my ears are covered,

all of me, I suppose.

I set a tree to tumble,

it holds the earth in place,

 ensures that I can’t back out

and try to escape this place.

The insects won’t be long now,

worms will go in and out,

eating me, devouring me,

I really have no doubt.

I am going home now,

from malice it will save,

I’ll dwell forever now in peace

within my earthen grave.
