Cut and slice,

Fresh and nice,

Whittling away the day.


My canvas you; so true--

With your body,

I do play.


They told me something's broken.

The clockworks mangled;

Like a sweater unravelling quickly,

Who pulled the string that dangled?


They say like the hatter,

I'm mad!

It's not so bad.

The tea here is good at least.


They treat me nice;

Give me good drugs,

At long as I keep in check--

The beast.


He is slinky,

Oily, slick and squirmy too,

And so quick --

He runs you through.


Tooth and claw,

The razor bites.

Flesh is flayed,

Your blood so bright.


I tried so long,

To make it right,

But sanity fled,

Ran in fright.


I let it go, hysterical--

giggles in my head.

So they put me in this padded room

To keep you all from being dead.
