    walking around with so much on his mind,
    diagnosed with something,
    "an antecedent to sadism", they say.
    he chopped off his raven's wings,
    envious of the black bird's flight;
    and scratched his own epitaph,
    'wicked minds think alike'.

    carbon taking the lead,
    charred his sticky tongue dark;
    he's a prodigal son turned red with defiance,
    sick of the spineless patriarch.
