Morrowind - Poem by Lee Slater

Please take me home away from this darkened place
Where the streets are serene, and the alleys spew lies
The lights have gone down, and I can hardly see
But I know all that lives here is destined to die
That's Morrowind for you.

Don't leave me alone, alone in my solitude
Your words sting like snakes, they haunt me in my mind
And as I look out of my soul and out of this room
I see your reflection in the windows, and drives me insane
That's Morrowind for you.

The iron lady sits with her hand on her gun
While her children begrudgingly slave for their mother
'Where is 'Steel' Dad' the children ask the iron lady
'Gone for a while, now work for me, I own you for life'
That's Morrowind for you.

Steel Dad uncurls from the moist-laden bed
As Red Rocket sits up beside him and lights a cigarette
She asks 'what's up dear, you look awfully sick.'
Steel Dad replies 'I should have never come to this tainted part of town.'
That's Morrowind for you.
