Who's In Your Head - Poem by John Paul Cosato

Who’s in the corner, who’s in your head – We’re not crazy, that’s what you said
Laughter in the background, screaming in the night – Burning candles, flames in a fight
Mommy’s not happy, fighting for a smile – Daddy’s not around, been gone for a while
Jr’s in his room with a gun to his head – Talking to the devil who’s under his bed
The reaper makes a promise, you know he collects – Sissy and her boyfriend are tripping on X
There’s a knock at the door and you’re coming down
The dealer brings a package and leaves with your crown
The queen of the system gets ready for her fix – Jr’s made a deal worth 666
Spirits consume all that is pure – Leaving the darkness, concealing the cure
Dysfunction is King with Pride by its side – Ruling the weak since Honor has died
From city to city and state to state – The stories the same, this is our fate
America the beautiful, the red white and blue – Has fallen from grace without a clue
Abortion, Abortion yell all of our girls – Hollister shirts and golden blond curls
Our conscience is lying and senses are dull – Our churches are empty and prisons are full
From age to age and women to child – The fruit of thy womb is born in denial
There’s no turning back for you or for me – The sins of our fathers are deep as the sea
The end is near so prepare to die – A wasted life in a blink of an eye
