The Lesser of Two Evils

The Lessor of Two Evils

Listen, her sobs shaking the tower
Slimy trolls are climbing towards her
Her mother-in-law left her to rot
Her elfin ears were burning red hot

She knew her mother-in-law was mad
She didn’t know why and it made her sad
The troll’s breath straightened her golden curls
Making her so sick it made her hurl

Trolls started melting and died from her puke
Far off she seen her husband the Duke
His mother started to run away
Knowing very well she’d have to pay

He called the Princess, let down your hair
When he reached the top, she was scared
He cut her hair and tied it secure
Had her follow him down staying demure

With Pleasure There’s Pain

Shaking uncontrollably
Cold sweats like rain in a storm
Bowels twisting and in knots
Bugs crawl over me in swarms 

Throat starting to close up tight
Joints feel like they’re grinding
This is the devil’s delight
With pleasure there’s pain I’m finding
