EGGS: 'Lord of the Marsh'

Posted By on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 9:36 AM

Lord of the Marsh
Motley swampthing
Keeping on walking
As the wheels fall off

Against the wet wind
Against some gunfire
Against most nothing
And against "against"

Born to live
Moving forward
Like a wall of spikes:

You can't push the blade
On the Lord of the Marsh

Parts just breaking off
Littering the highway
Scaring the children
In every passing car

Though no one is too young
To see the Lord of the Marsh

Dusty marching leather skeleton
Escaping from the haunted hotel

Looking all Beggars Banquet
Running off genetic memory

All out of parts
But still aware
With a favorite
Song to sing:

"Don't kill yourself,
Just die trying"
