The Madonna of Robin Hood Bay

lyrics

she rises from the steaming heaps
clad in a gown of black and green
shredded sacks glittering like tinsel

anointed with the ghastly stench
of a steak left to rot out in the sun
the flies buzz round and kiss her toes

as she stands atop a coiled gardenhose
the emerald green snake in the garden
of your artificial eden

oh, like maggots to a festering gash
we descend in a writhing mass

and filthy strands of mophead hair
clung with stains and dead insects
cradle the bruised peach of her face

pustulant red eyes like Lowney cherries
grayblue gums and chicklet teeth
riddled by caries

her gnarled lips parting like blackened rinds
her moans a shrill hydraulic whine
a song to lull her children to sleep

oh, like maggots to a festering gash
we descend in a writhing mass
