Filled with sated rats.

Those students with glowing eyes,
Now your head is prop.

Were unlike those which now rip,
At your tender flesh.

On bag carousel.

Something huge running through woods,
Directly at you.

As their bones boil to jelly,

That bite on your leg gets worse,
Then spider eggs hatch
.

You hear some screaming,
In feedback from your guitar,
Ghost backup singer.

No one suspects you,
When many corpses are found,
With tiny dog bites.
