Did they not chook** me with their cacti
and fill me with bilious waste – those
whose scrota should be jaundiced with
stings from wayward bees?
Did they not claw me with callous talons
and grip my vexing veins – those
whose hands will remain guests
to rheumatoid rust?
Did they not mock my wailings
and cause my teeth to gnash – those
whose nights should witness
harmonies of terror and bitterness?
Did they not defile my thighs
and maul my breasts – those
whose paths will forever
quake with anguish?
Did they not tear me apart
and watch my navel suffocate – those
who should be bobittised with blunt scalpels?
Some pricks should be snacks for hungry hyenas.
