Gremlin On The Wing

I inherited the whole earth
the moment I was born
I inhaled the whole universe by accident
when I was in a mood to go out dancing
I stomped my foot too hard and it
went all the way through

just another clerical mistake

my tears were not mediocre
they showered in meteors
evacuating first all of Florida
then the rest of North America

it’s just that your arguing causes
the ice caps to melt so quickly

you lack sound judgment—
I think that’s why you talk so loud
but still don’t hear others

the birds are coming
the birds are coming!
do you hear that?

and everything meek and everything
starting with a capital “e”
and maybe “m”
and the sky the sky too
will come down crashing
but you somehow don’t hear

I will be that 1983 voice in your ear
1984 is coming! 1984 is coming!

this is not revenge in some dumb life sentence
it is only natural that you will be
defeated by my nano-probes

I’m here to tell you it’s not heartburn
it’s the nano-probes

you think maybe it’s the homos
I’m here to tell you it’s the homos
and the heteros

I have put love and hate up against each another
as celebrities in a death match
I have lit the sky on fire with a 7 Eleven match
I’m that virus that will attach and
not let go
that same energy you put into
the back stabbing of me
is that same energy causing our fingernails to grow

what you have done
you have done some of the worst things
I have gotten real small
and not said a thing
until now

I’m that gremlin you think you saw!
I’m that gremlin on the wing

I’m that one dropping you
from 40,000 feet
I’m that gremlin on the wing
you better say your prayers
you better cover up in layers
