I’m watching it all from the Gods

  Going numb from the fights. I’m not

A smart man, I came to be saved

                                    Let me be saved


These people are not my friends, dogs

  Their teeth long, rip the flesh from bone

So brush my bruises with perfume

                                   Cover my tracks


Splinters, buried deep in my flesh

  Distract me from the blood soaked fur

A tick on a dumb animal

                                    Fat on old blood


I can’t watch Harry dance again

  They’ve left him cheap, lame and blinded

Those shuffled steps are mockery

                                    Just let him die
