Serpent eyes
Peer out from disguise
Endure to survive
Embellish the lies

Take, take, take
You are what you hate
There's no escape 

Bruised and battered
Clothing tattered
Porcelain shattered
Nothing matters

Insides squirm
Crawl like a worm
This you've earned
Lesson not learned

Rotten infant seed
Adjacent mother tree
Mimic all you see
Wallow in conceit

Writhe in the mud
Submerge in a flood
Of contaminated blood
Become undone

Shiver in a hole
Callous and cold
Endure your pain
Bleed your soul

Lose yourself
Fit the mold
Stripped, alone
Boxed and sold 

The End
