Acheron

Motorcade of flesh;

follow the one in front.

Green grass slopes either side,

but I am content with cyanide

for I have a skip to my stride.

 

I move in a motion;

conviction and purpose.

I have no regard for the living -

I am the gift that keeps on giving

without any forgiving.

 

Chained to dull frolicking 

and weary administration.

I am never free.

I can't hope to be

more than a delivery.

 

Night descends fast

and I swim through the cold.

But the engines keep turning

and I find myself burning

at the end of the river's concerning.
