Just Go Home

every day breaks
and every bird sings
and every touch hurts
and every word stings

every bite is venom
and every roof a tomb
and every talk a plenum
and every silence doom

baby you have ventured
too far from your dome
you’ve had your adventure
now just go home

you hoped that the structure
of your worldview
would not be damaged
by experiencing something new

you saw it as a challenge
or maybe easy pickings
it doesn’t matter now
around what you were dicking

truth is you have ventured
too far from your dome
i’m sure your dollies miss you
baby just go home

there are so many like you
i know i’ll find another
until i am too old
and by then too bored to bother

i’ll take the medicine
and not complain about the pill
the side effects are just a part
of objects lacking will

blindness to the web has caught you
too far from your dome
but i don’t want all of your blood
just a bit go home

every touch hurt
because my limbs are claws
and every word stings
because they have no cause

go before my venom
turns your guts to foam
you’re not my kind so you’re not immune

just go home
