Internal Necrolexicon


Each year brings another box
Deeply bound with glassine locks
Shivers racing up my spine
As I hear my youngest whine
"No mail for me? Poo!"
"Angel, this one's for you."
Greed overcomes her rant
Ripping the tape with nary a pant
Averting my eyes, I hear the scream
Look to see greasy steam
Mayhaps I'm mad as a Hatter
But the box seems a little fatter
Fearfully I open the box wide
Seeing the book nestled inside
Instructions For Sacfice For You
Edited by Cthulhu
"But I gave last year!!!"
Doesn't matter, have a beer
And think of what to tell the wife
About Angel and her end of life
Terminal Greed, it could work
I never liked the little dork
Messing and whining and carrying on
I'd just as soon have all of em gone
But, I need them this time of year
Standardized Deductions, sign here
Open the cover, start to read
Mind slipping, nose bleeds
Insanity coming as each page turns
Brain fodder for albino worms
Madness and understanding link
I UNDERSTAND IT, I think
I'll have this done in no time
Internal Revenue Tax Code for 99
And then I see Volume Two

If ever the old ones were to take modern flesh,
I believe we would find them working for the IRS.

Pretty damn sinister letting the kid open the box. Gotta like your style in a Cthulhu sort of way

Yes.. yes.. yes.. I love it.. Thank you Cat.. Another piece that was beautifully turned out from your strange mind.. I think that is why I challenged.. I knew that only you could make a difficult topic into a delightfully strange piece...

Where do you get these ideas from?

Love,
Lady
