You bruised and broke

My f a c e…

Mercy Hospital,

The sign says.

Honestly, now…

I'd rather s e e

Expert Doctors'

Hospital

On the sign out front,

Or, Don't you worry

Everything's going to be fine

Hospital.

M E R C Y

Sounds like

Something you give to

A person who's

D Y I N G, like

Putting them out of

Their M I S E R Y

With a pillow

Over their f a c e.

I felt so .s.y.m.b.o.l.i.c.

Last night…

It's hard to hurt

Someone who won't

Lie down and take

Your abuse.

Romeo never

Fell off a roof

Impressing Juliet,

Now did he?

B A B Y…

You are the

Next-best-thing to

F

Off a

Third-story b a l c o n y.

(You .c.a.n.t. .h.u.r.t. me.)
