Highway To Hell - Poem by Thivanka Perera
Your ego needs to be deflated,
Thrown to heap and incinerated.
Your dark heart should be lit
Alongside your immoral clit.
Ashes to ashes to ashes.
Last night too I dreamt of ethics;
Of your wantonness and faithlessness
Continued perennially into the night
Fell beyond the precipice
Directly into hell.—
I hear it’s hot down there…
Only you would know
As you being the devil’s advocate.
Just like Sylvia you would rise up
To 103 degrees, maybe more
Since your sins are beyond
But hell is the place for you,
And the devil is presumably gorgeous
So too is your decadence.
You would carouse with the devil,
Have lots of children:
Evil babies to bequeath thy hierarchy.
They too will walk the earth in
Will deceive the weak
Will murder and decimate morality
Forever into ashes to ashes to ashes.
