let the wolves get me
let the wolves come
long they’ve been chasing
so long have i run
let them see to it
that my downfall is one
that serves well for all
the damage i’ve done

the voices of choices
of echoes of ghosts
of undead walking
and stationed at posts
to relay to me painfully
where it hurts the most
and a remedy so quickly
they’re eager to boast

so here’s a toast
to teeth bared out
the wolves like demons
with screaming mouths
kerosene vomiting
down upon me douse
igniting to drown
the werewolf howls
