Killing the Immortal
Caged bird I will cut your feathers And let you free, forever. Old prisoner I will slay your throat And let you escape from here. Little kid Hand me your kite And play with rifles instead. Solitary girl Sing me songs of mourn For I will kill your mother now. White teddy Close your eyes tight As I rip off your cotton bod. Brave sailor Laugh and rejoice Until I draw a hole in your boat. Wounded warrior Count your last breaths As I finally shoot this arrow. Sweet baby Smile once more, and last As I snatch you away and throw.
Cut my feathers and I shall bleed
I won’t fly but the blood shall flow
And sow the seeds of a resilience new.
Slay my throat and I shall cry
I won’t say but I shall be heard
And a voice of courage shall rise.
Give me the rifle and I shall fire
I won’t aim but I shall shoot
And the bullet shall hit you instead.
Kill my mother and I shall weep
I won’t sing but tears shall flow
And rocks shall melt, and so shall you.
Rip me off and I shall wait
I won’t see but the cotton shall be free
And be woven again to form your shroud.
Draw a hole and the boat shall sink
I won’t cry but million would do
And tears of blood shall flood your dreams.
Shoot the arrow and I shall die
I won’t count but breath shall be gone
And another shall point to you.
Throw me away and I shall sleep
I won’t smile but doomsday would
And haunt till the end of your life.
