I wrote this poem while under the influence, so it may be tricky to understand. But basically, it's about a princess from an alternate universe who hates her life, and because of her ungratefulness, a man shows her how well she has it by showing her the hell on a planet called Earth. This is written from her point of view, so what she talks about may seem foreign, but I was only trying to get into character.. Hope you enjoy it!

"The View of An Outsider"

Candy cane soldiers roll her down like a boulder.

Her wet cheeks nearly speak with that bed on concrete on her shoulder.

Could it be? It is she!

Redundant locks trapped in braid.

Wishing only to be worthy enough to live her life in a new decade.

Suddenly, squirming around the corner

a mustached man repeats,

"Your wish is mine to fade,

you hold no recognition in the decision you've made.

So it's time you come with me."

The princess and her scruples finally flee.

Unsteady warp blurring corpse after corpse.

One with a top hat and 3/4 of a profile pose,

Horns surrounded with fur, turned to a hairless neck for a nose.

Useless change changed the pace, as far as walkin' goes.

Each taste is heavier.

Each word is touchier.

Their fingers grew legs running where answers grow on a tree.

Could it be? I see he!

How can you not when he hides in the most obvious of spots! I'm serious!

He's as clear as the beer on your beard. You're delirious.

Take a look at the windowless reflection pointing in the direction back at thee!

Sneaky little red-eyed bumble bee.
