Monsters and Whirlpools

Hesitating soul. Conflicting doubts.
Ineffectual dreams. Folly. Persist.
Formless essence. Angels weep.
Rages co-mingle. My kingdom for a drink.

Laud we the fools
Laud we the lords
Monsters and whirlpools
Double-edged swords

A man of genius makes no mistakes
His errors are volitional. The portals of discovery.
Virtues and sins. The speculation of schoolboys.
Eternal wisdom. Trumpeting out the arse.

Laud we the fools
Laud we the lords
Monsters and whirlpools
Double-edged swords

I hardly hear the purlieu cry
Or a Tommy talk as I pass one by
Before my thoughts begin to run
On F. M’Curdy Atkinson
The same that had a wooden leg
And that filibustering filibeg
That never dared to slake his drouth
Magee that had the chinless mouth
Being afraid to marry on earth
They masturbated for all they were worth

Piano. Diminuendo.
A tempo. Stringendo.
Dangerous lovesongs. Afterwit.
Jest on. Know thyself

Laud we the fools
Laud we the lords
Monsters and whirlpools
Double-edged swords
