Weed my wisdom
empty my glass
bend my thoughts like Plexiglas.
Bone my marrow
solicit my shade
discharge the battery of my Light Brigade.

Corrupt my culture
delouse my soul
halo my virtue with a Cheerio.
Hang my hopes
out to dry
douse my doubts in media lye.

Intubate my mind
siphon my dreams
looney my tunes with the third degree.
Milk my memory
reupholster my brain
drown my reality in virtual rain.

Stop shop
consumer rot
Buy comply
vie I die
Cut my face to
spite my nose
Bite off my head
anything goes.
Stuff my words
down the drain
say a prayer
and pull the chain.
