Hour 1: Marionette

Marionette, be merry!

I give the strings a yank

Awake!

Feel the strings control you

Feel them guide you

Feel them bind you

But smile, marionette

Be merry!

Dance a little jig

 

Stand up, marionette!

I’ll make you

You’re nothing but a toy

Feel the strings enfold you

Hold you

And as I lift you

Feel them hang you

 

But smile, marionette

Be merry!

Let us play pretend

 

Make yourself a liar

Choke!

Keep us entertained

Be everybody’s plaything

Chafe!

Give us pleasure for your pain

 

Marionette, be merry!

I give the strings a jerk

Alert!

Feel the strings instruct you

Feel them force you

Feel them stop you

But smile marionette

Be merry!

Do a pirouette

 

Fall down, marionette

I’ll let you

Your spine is but a twine

Feel the strings release you

Cease you

And as I drag you

Feel them stretch you

But smile, marionette

Be merry!

You’ll have roses at the end 

The End
