The Lyrics

Long nights make me tremble when I go to town—
clouds look just like gorgons; contusioners abound.
Good men chewed and draining when has set the sun.
No one’s come to, no one’s come to aid and stanch the vein.

I went out equipped with reeking rose—around neck worn;
I’d heard they weren’t able to overpower it; though
I found that tale unreal: one glommed ’neath my mane
my jugular, crêpuscular [sic]. Who’ll stanch the vein?

Heard the drinker draining, leering as he scored,
this sanguinary lecher, fluid thick and warm.
When it had stopped pouring, I could only jeer:
“Rhetorical is, ‘I wonder, who’ll stanch the vein’?”!
