Give Me a Name

Standard

Give me a name.
Something blameworthy.
Saddled with scurvy,
riddled with red hot remorse.
Coarse and corruptible.

Give me a name.
Make it real shameful.
Poke it full of holes
with soulless skewers.
Drag it through
the dankest of sewers,
soak it in sludge.

Give me a name.
Something you can shape
with your mouth.
Make sure its sound
is the sound of a moth
having its wings ripped to shreds.

Give me a name.
Just give me a name.
