Logorrhea & Other Defensive Mechanisms

I’ve been greedy before
wanting less
but hunger for truth lingers

A heart of recycled manure & a mind from the underground sewer
So let me be frank when I say, I can’t give a rat’s ass
about the past & shudder to think – what if his offspring live

The man upstairs has got my back
all I need do is relax
and he appears as quick as a lightning flash
… my mentor, my friend, dearest critic …
… lukewarm source of my defensive measures …
… the history …
… the mystery …
… the key to my grand deception …
… watering the seed of my discontent …
… the hound unfed before the hunt …
