‘Scorpio’ – Sex and death… read more musings about life!

Scorpio

Sex and death, death and sex:
is this all there is?

Is everything else in between
mere lies and nonsense

like a mountain of trash
to fill our emptiness

and to ease the unbearable agony
of being alone?

We are sickened by the truth
of our parents copulating,

the thought of their bodies, lifeless,
unable to help us anymore.

Either one is unpalatable, extreme,
staring at us twenty four seven

with laser beam eyes in the dark
waiting for psycho-babble to fade

and our heart to wail at the sight
of the scorpion’s tail
