Wormwood - Poem by Dan Cummings

I know just what you came here for,
but you're not welcome here anymore.
You should leave before I settle the score -
I'm square ivory tusks exploding up through the floor,
with a fury matched only by my decor.
I'm stained with blood from the girls before,
avenged by me.
I think I'll opt for a slow reprise.
Fur Elise should match your demise.
The tempo is steady as is my knife.
I tie you down using only spite.
So now you see what I've become.
If you were me, I would run.
But I'm afraid you're too late
let me explain your fate.
[Verse 2]
I'll downcast sadness with no remorse.
For purgatory I'll plot the course.
The waves don't ever break on the lake of fire's shores -
Just wait, you'll see...
