The Top Shelf

Monarchs of Scotland
Entertaining With Friends
The Queen of The Damned Arrived
she started telling jokes about The Virgin Suicides
Enchanting a Disenchanted World,
so she thought,

Two men enter The House of Sand and Fog
David and Goliath, they're wearing Mysterious Skin
they talk of a Cell and a Garden of Shadows
and something about Petals On The Wind,

someone in the back yells "That Boy Ain't Right"
and someone replies "who?" "Otto's Boy?"
others chat about the Deep End of The Ocean
and the women about who is Thinner

In The Dark of The Night and One Door Away From Heaven
no one speaks Of The Hell Bound Heart
or the ever present Bag of Bones
perhaps we are all Monsters inside The Tachyon Web
