I met your father in his dolama
standing on the dais smiling back at me
teeth like the shrines of Topheth
protruding out from his head
framed by a yatagan in the family centuries
inscribed with
be not afraid
your difficulties
by half of a Roman carnival
soon we will be drinking wine and mead
and the curses will flow like a fumarole

a vision of me
in St. Agnes' eye
as tall as a torril
with shoulders as wide
rising from a thrown pillow
to the servants quarters
creating and destroying with
each drunken stride

There's one thing in common
that the good people share
that's the need to be together everywhere
but you and I we drink from the fountain our fill
cuz if the cure don't kill you
then the sickness surely will

Oh how your voice
resonates while I'm admonished
watch the noblemen sipping their
oolong tea
I have not the temperament of a crusader
cuz I don't think heaven's
what it's cracked up to be
My testimony is true
but it may take few
cuz I'm feeling quite rakish in my seersucker suit
believe me dear sir
I am far from the devil
but I'm here to take your family from you.
