[ Stephen King inspired ] The Literary Kings of Mean Things

 
You write about things mean  

I write about things mean  
 
Together, we're a mean motherfucking pair  
---the Literary Kings of Mean Things  
 
I'm the Richard to your Stephen  
high toned sonofabitch of which  
keeps you razor straight and even  
or left tuned up in a roadside ditch  
 
Pay the price when you mess with me  
Hoss, any skin off my nose?  
It's your loss  
Comin after you now, a freight train  
on schedule, delivering the pain  
 
You're gonna wish you were the one  
those fool stuffed publishers buried  
 
And as the window of opportunity narrows  
I have to ask, What the fuck!  
is up with all these goddam sparrows?!
 
 
Baby, Baby  
I'm taking this act solo to Endsville  
There's hell to pay n plenty of blood  
to spill along the way  
 
Light and Dark  
---halved Good and Bad  
we're the Literary Kings of Mean Things  
but only one of us is here to stay  
and I'm sorry to say  
it ain't gonna be you,  
Thad
