Hey, Mr Matador!

 

Hey, Mr Matador,

you like inflicting pain,

you like to hear the bellowing

again and yet again.

 

Hey, Mr Matador,

you love to taunt and maim;

let’s see how you like it if we

flip around this game.

 

There you are on hands and knees,

hear the cheering on the breeze;

not for you, oh, not this time

for you’ll be cut down in your prime.

No chance of a swift release, hear the bulls all jeering,

bellowing now for your blood, the first stab that is nearing.

The pain is bad, you need to run, but look, there’s no way out;

you’re going to have to persevere, of that I have no doubt.

Look out, here comes another one, placed so that it won’t kill;

the spectacle of your agony gives the crowd a thrill.

The feet are pounding forward to taunt you once again;

you’ll not get an ounce of sympathy but suffer yet more pain.

Eventually you’ll be brought down your life’s about to end;

but your suffering was not in vain, supporters will defend.

The maiming and the torture is a part of your tradition

but maybe you’re not quite as keen -- with this new addition.

 

Hey, Mr Matador,

how do you now feel,

I’m thinking that it is some shame

that this cannot be real.

 

Hey, Mr Matador,

your life is worth no more,

than that of the bull you’ve tortured

and left dead upon the floor.
